My pc is switching off on startup just as the windows log on is about to appear.Bios screen passes ok,hd powers up ok then pc shuts down.I can boot from floppy with windows disk or from cd with knoppix and access the hd but cant boot from it.I`ve tried known spare powersupply and graphics card with no change,any ideas please.I`m running ME on a biostar mb ,1600 duron 512 ram

Check to make sure that your power on switch on the front of the case isn't sticking in. Had the same symtoms on one of my machines and that was the cause.
