Pc shuts down as soon as it connects to the internet although the fan is still running, the Pc has then to be shut down manually by pressing the button and pressing again to restart.
Running XP and the HD has been reformatted and it's still happening, does anyone have any ideas please

How do you connect to the net? Broadband/Dialup/Cable/ADSL?
Reinstall modem drivers if dialup or ADSL, system file check or IEFIX.
System file check - Start menu/run, type

sfc /scannow

have your XP CD handy.

Thanks for you replies and cures (hopefully) I'll pass on your advice as it's not for me
