    I'm new to this site and I'm not very tech savy, but anyways I'm running a basic, older model e-machines computer with windows xp sp3. When I turn it on it gives me a couple of choices; start windows normally, start in safe mode, last configuration that worked etc.... Anyway I've tried all of them and the same thing happens, it goes to the boot screen for a few seconds and then it shuts off, anyone know about this problem? . Any help or advice would be much appreciated thanks.

    Hello,

    When the computer was last used.. was it shut down okay?
    Did anyone install any new hardware or software the last time it was working?

    Try this for us:

    Let it get to that menu again and try "Safe mode with command prompt"?

    Does that work?

    While I was using it it randomly shut-down, and no I haven't installed any new hardware. Also choosing "Safe mode with command prompt" gives me the same results. Maybe it's time for a new computer....
