    Recently a computer in a different room was giving me problems. It kept turning off on me, usually within a minute after booting up... Sometimes I got to the desktop but then it would turn off.
    So I put it in my room to work on it, and I thought I fixed it. I left it on for days in my room... no problems.
    I put it back in the other room and within a minute it did it again.
    I thought it was the power cable but I switched it with the one in my room and still the same problem. So I tried the surge protector, same problem. The power supply is fine, as I tested it earlier. I Plugged the surge protector in a different outlet, still the same problem. Also, everything plugged into the surge protector and everything plugged in, in the room works fine.
    You think the problem exists in the circuitry in the room or might there be a computer problem?

    Computer Specs for the computer are pretty outdated. Its an old custom built computer, for work purposes. Its around 6 years old. But as it worked in my room, I don't think it should be an issue.

    -Thanks

    I would check the CPU temp in BIOS. Just switching off is usually due to overheat.

    I Just remembered.. and I dunno if this a big deal or anything but... When the computer was in my room, instead of using the monitor from the other room, I was using the monitor in my room. The monitor in the other room is pretty old and if moved, it shorts out and the screen goes black until I move it back. So yea :confused:
