Hi,
What can be wrong with my computer? The OS - Windows XP Pro 64 - turn on and
off all the time. This is something that started 2 month ago, and before
that It have worked without any problem. I have not change any hardware of
pheripheral, it is exacly the same as it was when it worked without any
problems; the only difference can be that I now have SP 3 installed. No
change in the software.

happy for an answer,
Ulf

Not an answer to your problem, but there is no SP 3 for XP x64. The latest
service pack is SP 2.

Assuming there is nothing in your Event log to indicate system problems:

1. Check that your PSU is not failing - fan or component failure can cause
it to overheat and deliver variable power before eventually giving up
altogether.

2. Check for dust build-up between your CPU fan and heat sink. If you shine
a light through the fan you should see the cooler fins clearly. If you
can't, remove the fan and clear the dust mat.

3. Any failing component - internal or external - can cause intermittent
problems. Disconnect or remove everything non-essential and replace them one
by one until you find the problem component.

Hi,
Thank you for that answer. Now I know - it must be a hardware problem. Thank
you again.
