I have to agree Perl. Your question just doesn't make any sense.

since he did not reply, I assume that he is trying to increase his posts counter.

No, I am not trying to increase my posts counter.
I just didn't have time to awnser and I am sorry for that.
About the problem I think you are right I did not explain
very well. (my english is not very good)
It's just what ATNO/TW said.
My computer shuts down when I am working at it.

Thank You...

Try looking into this thread:
http://www.ozzu.com/mswindows-forum/sasser-virus-info-lsass-exe-terminates-with-error-code-t24247.html

It may be a Sasser variant. Make sure your antivirus definitions are up to date and do a full scan.

If you do not currently have antivirus software, a good free one is available at:

Before it shuts down is there any warning signs such as a pop up or beeps from the computer?

What version of Windows XP are you using? And is SP2 installed?

No, there is no warning.
It's not like the virus...that counts down and then shuts down.
It's shuts down without a warning.
Yes SP2 is installed...but I removed it :roll:
I don't know if that was a good Idea.
I'm using XP Pro..and I have Northon Anti virus.

Thank You...

There is a possibility that your CPU is overheating. Open your case and boot your computer. With the computer on, make sure your CPU fan is running and your power supply fan is running.

Download and run this program:
http://www.cpuid.com/pcw.php

This program will allow you to see your CPU temperature. Post the temps. We may be looking at a hardware related issue.

Not sure. I'm not a great hardware expert, but I moved this to hardware, because I think that's probably what we're dealing with. It's the most logical reason your computer just shuts off instantly is a hardware problem. The guys that hang out in this forum might be able to offer better sggestions and things to check.

you would be looking for cpu temperature in that program you downloaded, if it's not listed then either there isn't one on your motherboard or the program can't find it, 45c is a little hot for the hard drive but still ok.

Does windows shut down like it normally does going through all the shutdown windows? or does the computer just power off straight away? if it powers off then your cpu is overheating.

The1 - By the way I've been reading his posts so far, we're looking at an instant shutdown. I didn't think the 42c was abnormally high for a processor (it's a processor temp he posted, btw -- not hard drive), but I suspect that reading was taking when not much was going on. I guess the direction I'm headed is that there starts to be some intense activity like a game that could overheat the processor.

PERL are you running a game, or can you describe what you are normally doing when this happens? From everything I've read so far, an instant shutdown like that is due to a processor overheating. Am I correct on that??

if that's the cpu then even under load that shouldn't be a problem only when you get to 60c + it's really a problem. But it still might be the issue because if the fan isn't working then it might idle ok but under load without a fan it'l get hot very quick

No, I never play games on my computer.
The only thing I do is internet.

And The1, yes it't an instant shut down.
I think ATNO/TW is right...the computer is overheating.
I would understand overheating at a computer that is full
of games and movies etc.

Could it be I made a wrong choice buying this computer?

Wow! That's a sleek looking computer. Didn't realize Sony had that one. Got a model number? Do some Google searching on the model number for overheating or problems, and see if others are experiencing that problem. First thing I thought of when I saw the picture is that there's barely any room in there for a fan. That's one tight little box.

Sony makes good products. Personally, I wouldn't have bought one just because I really don't like Sony's proprietary nature, but not because they don't have quality.
