    Briefly- Power supply quit - replaced but WinXP would not run. Got 07e stop error and others. Tried everything to restore using UCBD; Chkdsk/r; FixMBR; etc. No luck.
    Saved all files on C:; formatted, reinstalled WinXP and some applications, which run fine.
    Have apps on separate D: drive as well as on other partitions on main drive.

    Some programs will run from thumb drive. If I try to run apps from other drives without reinstalling, I expect to get 'DLL missing' errors BUT instead my screen blanks and computer REBOOTS. I get no blue screen or stop error.

    Any/all thoughts appreciated.
