Problem with sisters PC. She can boot it up ok and it runs ok, gets to the desktop etc. Afetr about 5 mins the PC just closes down by its self. The monitor just has the signal message thereafter and her base unit LED's just freeze up. This happens each time she restarts her base unit.The base unit doesn't shutdown completley and the fan keeps running also.
As I said its my sisters PC, have asked her if she has been messing about with it but she assures me no. She only uses it for the internet, nothing else. She has Windows ME installed, correct me if i'm wrong but instead of pressinf delete I press F2 to take me into the bios set up
When u mentioned failsafe, id that the same term for ME.
You could try this, Keep pressing F8 as computer starts choose Prompt, Type SCANREG /RESTORE press enter then choose a date before the problem there should be five date to choose from. If that does not work it may be Hardware
