Does it give any errors?

Exactly what hardware are you using?

Are all the parts new?

by mrbill- In reply to computer turning off

When you bought your parts did you buy all new or did you recycle some componants, i.e. case/power supply? What is the power rating of your PS?

When you say the system shuts down does it go through shut procedures or just cut out?

The parts are all new....... its a 350watt PS
and when it shuts down it just cuts out....
i took out the 256mb stick and put in a 512 and it does it much less now...
