See whether the problem is resolved. If the problem is unresolved, do a 'System Restore' by going into Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then select System Restore. Follow the prompts. If the problem is still unresolved, do a repair install of XP. If none of these things work, do a complete backup of all data, and then do a re-installation of XP. You will have to re-install all programs. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumSolvedCustom PC keeps restarting/turning off/on.
