HELP please !!!!

This laptop will randomly shutdown and reboot itself. When it shuts down, the screen suddenly goes dead accompanied by, what I can only describe as, an electical noise like a buzz or a short.
The reboot does not always make it to Windows, sometimes hangs or sometimes simply shutsdown again and start another reboot.

It can go days without doing this at all and then start doing it frequently.

System is :

HP Laptop - Elitebook 8540p
Intel Core i7 CPU
M 620 @ 2.67GHz
1.17GHz 2.98GB Ram

Windows XP SP 3

Anyone got any ideas or had it happen to them ?

It doesn't sound good.
Still under warranty?

It sounds to me like some internal problem.
IMHO, the best option would be to have it checked by a pro shop.
