Please be more specific - is the machine automatically shutting down, or just losing power?

Is it throwing up a blue screen before shutting down?

If it is shutting down the same after a full clean rebuild then its unlikely to be software - it could even be that the power button on your computer is sticky, and is triggering a shut down.

Hi
A message comes that Firefox etc needs to close down, sometimes but not very often the whole PC shuts down. No blue screen comes up. It could be a power problem, I just do not know. I do run a power hungry Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.2GHZ processor. I can hear the fan speed up when it gets hot.
I have seen a lot of complains about poeple using Office /Word 2003 I do have problems with WORD 2003 it constantly wants to save the file I am working on, stops than recovers the text file.
Could that be part of the problem? Would upgrading to Office 2007 help and fix the shut down problem?
