    I have had this problem in the past. I finally ended up replacing the motherboard. I beleive it is a capasitor that heats up and quits. Just guessing. May not be you problem at all.

It seems, that you should replace motherboard, I've seen this kind of problems in my office, after year or two you won't be able to turn it on at all. In my opinion, it's bad quality capacitor on motherboard.
Any way there is little chance that it cold be bad PSU, but it's really small chance.

PC with windows xp professional , on booting , shuts down immediately everesince I uninstalled Nero Dvd writing programme


Reboot your PC and immediately start tapping the F8 key, then choose to start in safe mode. Now click the start button, then click run. Type MSCONFIG and choose startup programs and disable all startup programs and see if it boots ok. If it does you can retype msconfig and one at a time re-enable your startup programs until you find the one that makes your PC hang and reboot, Keep that one turned off after you find it, and re-enable the rest of your startup items.

Ibm netvista shuts down on start up


1. if possible check and see how dusty the system is inside.. used compressed air cans to dust it off.. don't touch any components... watch esd so ground yourself while you're at it
then test
2. you're power supply may be dying: ground yourself to the same ground as the computer (watch for esd) and replace the powersupply.
then test.
the keyboard or controller may be damaged, check for resource conflicts in your bios related with keyboard (make sure no other items are using the same irq's.. check plugs, test with other key board.. replaced motherboard.
random shut down could also mean that the cpu is overheating.. make sure the cpu fan is undusted and working.

How to change the boot option in IBM 6578-PBU desktop


I searched for hours for a solution to this. Here it is:

1). Restart your computer, NOT using ctrl - alt - del
2). Press F1 when guided to.
3). When you get into the config menu, select Start Options, then hit enter twice.

There are all the options you need! Cool, huh?
