first of all thanks.
I have this weird problem where my computer will shut off without any notice or error. I don't think its the power supply overheating as the CPU and HDD temps seems to be fine not to mention that the PSU is about a year old. Its on a system that I built, socket 478 pentium 4, 768 sdram, asus motherboard, 2 HDDs. Its using windows XP pro with sp3 I believe. Its basically used as a server so there is not much activity other than being on 24/7.
So, back to the problem, the computer shuts down without notice. No error, none that is even reported to the error reporting service. There is no restart and when the computer is turned on manually, there is no "the computer has shutdown incorrectly so run chkdsk" message either. It boots up fine too. So I have run virus scans, malware scans, registry cleaners, registry optimizers, defrags, and nada. Same thing happens. I can't figure out whats causing it. As I have said, the error reporting service does not report any issue that would have caused it to shut down. There was an issue with the IMAPI thing for the cd but the time that the error occured and the time the computer shut down were too far apart to be the cause. I have gone into system settings and unchecked "automatically restart" when there is an error. I have made sure that there were no scheduled tasks either. No third party programs running that would cause it to shut down and no scheduled virus scans either.
