Continuous Start up/Windows7 HP

  zarobian 17:34 26 Feb 2010

Last night about 01:00 AM, I woke up on a beep and surprised to know that my computer was switched on by itself. Without thinking much I forced to switched it off.
To-day in the morning about 08:47 it switched on and went off continuously.
After a while I managed to start up the machine in safe mode. Ran Malewarebytes. Microsoft Security Essentials were not available in safe mode! Restarted the computer normally and it ran system recovery and system restore.
After a while in the system properties I un-ticked the ‘automatic start up and recovery’ option. So for so good. I do not know what caused this problem. System information pointing to start up recovery and update failure. Checking the update history there is no update downloaded to day and every one in the list is reported successful!!
Is it PSU or else?
Packard Bell iMediaX2414 Q6600 Processor
3 GB of RAM
CPU Temp : 29C
System Temp: 35C
CPU Fan Speed 1516
Power on after Power fail=Off
Still under warranty till 8/3/2010.
No scheduls.
Any idea folks.

Thanks for your response.
As I said there are no schduled programs. Defreg is set to manual and so as automatic up dates.Media centre I am not sure. I shall check it out. Also iTunes needs to be checked. Will post back. Since my previous post machne is quite in that sense.Thanks again.
