My old computer a compaq presario running win/98 keeps shutting down within 30 seconds with the message on screen- Power Save Mode off mode - with a loud click from what seems to be the hard disk - has it given up on me or has anyone got any ideas???
Thank DS - got home tonite and switched on -fan running ok - got to desktop then it shut down-re-started and pressed F8 but all i got was 42 301 keyboard error, chose safe mode to start it then ran MS Scandisk and got to safe mode opening screen then shutdown. ps dont think it a virus as my daughter does not use it on the internet- reading previous problems could it be the PSU?? only guessing - will try shaking it before i bin it.
