PC crash - Failure to restart windows

  item 11:11 23 Jun 2003

Have just tried to save a Word doc and PC shut down. It will not reopen windows. I get a message to say that PC closed to safeguard files and invited to open insafe mode but when I choose this the machine shuts down again.

Had a similar problem yesterday when machine had been left and monitor went into power save and unable to reactivate so had to switch PC off. After many attempts to restart, it finally came to life and worked and shut down OK. Started OK this morning, after 2 hours went to save word doc and it shut down.

Running XP, AMD Athlon 2300+, 512 DDR Ram. Multivision machine about 4 months old Grateful for any suggestions.
