My xps 8000 shuts down in the middle of use and reboots as if someone had pulled the power cord. Purchased in 2009 no additions to the box. Standered 350W power supply.

How hot is it when it shuts down ? High temps can cause failure in the computer. Try removing dust and try again. If it dosen't work, send the laptop back or buy a new because it's most likely a hardware problem and a laptop is kinda hard to repair compared to normal towers.

Sorry I may not have been clear it's a desk top. It doesn't appear to be hot but I am going to clean the dust out. And test.
