    I have this computer with windows XP installed. I am using it typing a document when it suddenly shut off by itself. And when i try to turn it on it doesn't on. You have to unplug it and plug it in again for it turn on. When you plug it in it automatically power on without pressing the the switch. After a week in that situation (autoshutoff) i decided to format the hardrive because i can't remove all the viruses. I have done re-partitioning, format and scandisk. Now, during windows installation the power suddenly shut off again. So, i go to the same procedure , unplug and plug the power cord and started installation again, after 5 or 10 minutes the power shut off again. Can anybody help please.
    Thanks.
