I have a Compaq box running WinXP completely updated to the latest service pack and all security patches. A few days ago it would enter shutdown mode by itself displaying the "Windows is shutting down", "saving your settings" messages and then re-boot after a minute or two. The next day the boot process wouldn't even complete before power cut out. Today, I replaced the power supply with no effect. I have removed all peripherals and internal add-on cards except keyboard, mouse, monitor. Power is now supplied only to the mobo, floppy, HD and CDR/W. The problem persists. Any ideas?
