    What have you changed or done lately when this started happening?

    have you upgraded your video card, added any new devices, Downloaded anything that might contain a virus?

    Any messages pop up or errors?

    usually this haoppens do to a Hard ware error but other thing can cause this.

    There are dozens of reasons, impossible to narrow it down without some details about what you've tried so far. Virus / spyware scan lately?

    Power off from lack of use?  Power settings.
    Pwers back up? Bumped mouse or floor shook?

Power shutting down

check your power-save settings they could be turning the computer off. it could also be a bad chipset that is getting shorted or a bad fan that is causing the pc to overheat and turn off. hope this helps.

Processor fan

Maybe you have not put the correct fan on and it has shut down to protect itself. Processors overhead catastrophically in a matter of seconds. Also did you connect the fan to a power supply on the motherboard.

Boot failure pentium 4

here is a temporary fix, but you may like it as a permanent one. Use the Windows hibernate mode. It actually works every time! Windows makes a "System screen shot" and stores it on hard drive and then powers off. Just be aware that you must ensure enough hard drive space for this. I am using this mode every day now. I think your system is trying to reject the power-saving features selected in Windows or at CMOS settings. Try turning off (or disabling) one feature at a time. I still think hibernate is the way to go. Here is a useful tip: to force hibernate (after it has been enabled) select START-SHUT DOWN and hover over STANDBY button and then hit the SHIFT key. The STANDBY button will turn into the HIBERNATE button. This is a quick way to enter hibernate. Remember to enable SYSTEM RESTORE mode so that if anything goes wrong during this "experiment", you can easily restore Windows system. I also use RESTORE but I also "clean house" once a month by turning it off and Disk scan and defrag and turning it back on.
