My Computer is 3 years old.
Its an AMD athlon X2.
I am using it with a Abit MB. NO Graphics card.
My problem is - Computer shuts down. Worse part is i can almost predict when it will happen. It happens whenever i try to run 3 for 4 program at a time. or try to do anything related to image or graphics. (like click pictures in a flash website, Converting RAW files to JPEG files, watching a 1024p Vdo....etc)
WORSE part is....after i press the power button again....it boots...shows me the desktop and the shuts itself down again....it keeps happening..i have to give it a 10-20 mins rest. after 10-20 minit...its alright again.
i have tried cleaning the fan and cooling sink. no work. one thing i noticed...the gell between processor and cooling sink is dried.
and if its a hardware problem....why does it happen after booting? i mean why do i have a successful boot? why doesn't it happen while loading the windows?
and if its a software problem....(like virus or corrupt windows) ..then why it becomes alright after rest?
