    Usually when I see this error its the Power supply, or and bios issue. Anyone have any Ideas. I can actually boot to windows but the computer shuts down in about 20 min and give that error. I am use to seeing that when it will not start, but it starts and stays on for a bit but not long enough to save stuff. I even tried to reload it and it wouldn't let me. I am figuring its the hard drive. Any Ideas

    First of all, no one has any idea what we are attempting to diagnose. Post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb, exact ram, exact video card, etc, etc. If this is a big box system, then post the exact brand and model# If you have a service tag# post that as well.

    Note do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for all of your parts.

    While I appreciate your reply, I strongly disagree from exp that you dont need specs like that just to give and humble opinion. If I had heavy gamer or something extravagant I was making or working on, A huge video card I would agree, but Im not. Usually I found that issue to be a update altering the bios uefi OR csm alterd, power supply, ram, or HHD. Service tags are not needed, nor much more specs for a simple gateway I am just having fun playing with a computer that came from recycling. I was just asking for an oppion bc ive seen this happen before but it was at boot up, or from a bad power supply. I dont think its heating up but I will check my utilities and hhd next. You actually made me feel like I was getting the third degree like im a prisoner or something. This kind of issue can happen with just about any computer make or model.... I will figure it out. Sorry for asking a question. Thanks anyway.

    Well, how would anyone know unless you gave specs???
    You know what you are working on; we do not.

    If you do not want to post specs, that is fine. Someone may be able to help you.
