Since evesham returned my PC from an RMA now and again its been shutting down, all the fans on the Motherboard turn fine, its like if I'm using any spyware checker the PC just shuts down, any ideas too what it could, because I'm sending it back too evesham this week, I'm running the AMD 64 3000 and wondering how much of a difference I would see if I get the AMD 64 3800 DT CPU ??

There must be a reason, you just don't know what it is yet.

At the moment I have the PC out in the open where its getting good cool air but it still manages too be stupid, when the PC is in the desk were I store it the PSU is really warm

Putting a Computer in one of those Computer cubby holes is asking for trouble. Bet it's in a corner to top it all

Corrupt driver files is another possibility

Rob, does your Pc Plug directly into a wall socket or do you use an extension lead.
If A lead are you by any chance moving it by accident or perhaps just a faulty lead. Sometimes one has to start from basics
Good luck

Fruit Bat - Don't think its Faulty driver files
WoodChip - if my computer is out of the desk then why is it shutting down? It has too be a dodgy PSU or something?
Driving Man - I have an extention lead

Rob, try another lead or if possible move PC to a wall socket to eliminate power problems before they get to your PC

To me it looks like Heat as you suspect

Also another problem as i recently found out is if you have two different types of RAM.
