I have had to buy a new computer because my old one, Compaq (2002 vintage) has a habit of switching off & on again for no apparent reason. I lose anything I am working on when this happens. I have Win XP as my OS. Any ideas why this is happening?
There are two possibilities, one is a psu failure,most likely and 2 is a virus. If your av is upto date then psu failure is the most likely. Psu's are cheap and easy to replace.
Thanks Jac_1 and Marg7,Excuse my ignorance - what is a psu?I will examine the fan for dust.Regards
