    I am having problems with my Dell Inspiron 2650 with Windows XP Home.
    It just turns off randomly without warning, usually while I am playing Age of Mythology by Microsoft. It also kills itself while running McAfee VirusScan and Nero CD burning software. At one point it was doing it every 30 minutes or so. I finally ran enough of VirusScan to detect some viruses, which I promtly deleted, ran ad-aware, etc. It subsided temporarily, but now does it almost exclusively while playing AOM. It the game creating the problem? Or the cd-rom? I am lost on this one.

    What is a Labtop?

    Is it something like a Laptop?
    Sounds like an overheating issue. Are the airvents free of dust etc? Has it always done it?
