    Hiya Everyone,
    I turned on my computer about a few weeks ago,Windows XP SP2 started up fine and then the whole thing just turned off,It never shut down just an immediate switch off,I tried taking out the memory,graphics card to see if it was a faulty part but nothing worked,I bought a new graphics card with no success,It just keeps doing the same thing,It goes on stays on,It can stay on from 2 seconds to 10 minutes it sometime just switches off but it can last longer sometimes,Does anybody have an idea what could be wrong,Its just a new computer built by someone,It is 2.93GHZ Celeron,200GB Harddrive,512Ram,256MB Graphics,DVDRW Windows XP SP2,Your help would be much appreciated as it was an expensive pc and now its just sitting there,Thanks for any help that is received,
