    To prevent damage? I was installing windows media player 9.0 for XP and all the sudden it stops.. and i can hear the hard drive wind down like it has been turned off.. then a blue screen pops up and says "the computer has been shut down to prevent damage.. if this is the first time youve seen this message restart and disable bios settings or hardware" never have i seen this before.. any ideas?
