  • I'm having the same problem with my daughter's machine.  Its a Presario 2570US, over 1GB Ram, 40M HDD. It is Windows XP Pro SP2.  I flashed the BIOS to HK.F 25 which is the latest, but it doesn't help.  She was on MYSPACE today when it shut down.  It ran for days while connected to the internet without problem, but it was connected to MYSPACE during that time.  Let's compare some notes and figure this out.  What are you doing on the internet when it shuts down?
