I've found now with my Windows 7 PC, that everytime I load to explorer, it will shut down random after about 10 seconds to 5 minutes use... I've tried a system restore, a diagnostics thing, and I've tried safe mode. Anyone know what the problem is?

Sounds like it could be a virus. Does it give you the old "windows will shut down in 60 seconds" window ?

no, it just cuts the power.

I'm writing this from the comupter in question. I've disabled automatic restart, am backing up to external hard drive and shall soon start a repair on what the maintanance has identified as bad sectors. If it is a virus, hopefully I'll choke it out.

I've also system restored to the 24th, though it hasn't worked...

It's not a power issue, since i can infinately use the CD boot and BIOS...

When the battery thing over heats, does the PC shut dow? I found that the fan was off and the whole box was very hot.

The battery is only there so the pc can store your bios info. (Assuming your not talking about a laptop) If you are talking about a PC and that a fan is out on your motherboard then the chances are that is the issue as they are usually there for your chipset.

Is there anyway of getting it to run without me having to stick a pair of scissor into the back of the power supply to jump start it?

Now you have just confused me :confused:

Exactly what fan has stopped working? Is it the one ine your power supply or one on the motherboard near your battery ?

Try making sure all your drivers are upto date. Visit the sites and get the makers drivers instead of microsofts.

it sounds like a faulty power supply.

The fan in the power supply is the faulty one.

My PC has been rnning constantly for about 6 hours without fault. I'm having to keep it particularly cool, however. I'm using Vtune and Speedfan to monitor temperatures..
