computer shuts down by itself

By cpaplanner ·
I have a Hewlett Packard computer and after I start the machine, the computer automatically shuts itself down after a few minutes of loading files. My monitor is a Viewsonci m70 and it does not produce a desktop when started. Both of the front lights are on. Only the "right" light should be on. These two devices are connected together. Any help would be appreciated.

What operating system? Win98? Will it go into safe mode? If so, use 'msconfig' to disable all your startup programs.

I found that the video card was partially unseated, which when re-seated solved my problem.
