First of all, it shut itself off sometime last night, and it wouldn't boot up again this morning until I reset the switch on the power supply. Then Windows locked up on me for no apparent reason, and when I rebooted, I got a message after Windows loaded that "A registry entry had to be replaced from a backup copy. The recovery was successful."

Hopefully it will work fine now. What could have caused this though?

A too high voltage (due to storm), for example, may shutdown a machine a generate writing errors at that moment...

I have just been informed that there was a power failure due to weather conditions during the early morning hours while I was sleeping. Guess that explains the shutdown.

You're computer probably just got a nice jarring shock of voltage. s'cool though you reset your power supply and windows fixed itself up ?

I guess so. I just was wondering what the heck happened to it, and if anybody has had this happen to them before too.

Well I've already seen computers getting shutdown brutaly by storm, yet I had never seen Windows fix a registry error by itself... which one is it ? Vista ?
