Shuts down during converting avi and doing search through spyboot

Hello and happy new year.
I have been experiencing problems with my pc for the past couple of days while trying to convert movies using winavi converter or doing a spy search using spyboot. After about 5min of using either programe the computer shuts itself off. I have a laptop presario model number m2515tu series running windows xp prof with 1.7ghz processor 60gb internal hardrive plus 160gb external harddrive and have 1024mb or memory. I had installed bluetooth drivers and I did a recent virus scan which came up with two infection though one showed on the hi speed navigator which is what I use to connect to the internet.

    I keep a fan running on the computer though over heating might be the case. I have had this problem before but not sure why and by reinstalling windows did work it's not something that I would like to do though it might be the case. Just wanted to know if there was another solution.

    I have installed a thing called speed fan and it says HDO:36C

    I have had this problem before and by reinstalling windows it solved the problem though have reinstalled since it happened again but to no avail. Any further help would be gladly accepted.

    I think I have finally fix the issue but still need to do more tests before I conclude.
    After rattling my brain I decided to delete the divx bundle 6.8 and while trying to convert a film with convertx which previously shut the computer down I managed to convert not one but two films. I have installed ffdshow codec and also installed dix bundle 6.1 plus winavi converter again. Will try it when have film that won't play on my dvd. Will let you all know what the results are. Till then have fun and hope this message helps anyone who has or gets the same problem.

Depending on how your PC is shutting down, this can suggest a couple of problems.

1.)If you are getting kicked out with a Blue Screen of death and a memory dump, pay attention to the code about 75% down on the screen, that STOP error can tell you what the OS freaked out about and decided it couldn't keep running. STOP errors are actually good, because they give you a chance to know what is wrong, PLUS you know that it is probably just Windows at fault.

2.)If you are just plain getting dropped to full power off, more than likely you are over-heating. You can narrow down this possibility by getting yourself a diagnostic tool like Eurosoft's PC-Check to run a full myriad of tests on your hardware, this may prove a non-OS dependent (Hardware or BIOS) issue. You can also go to to try the CPU Burn-In tool to see if you are just crashing while Windows crunches numbers.
The fix can be anywhere as simple as replacing a burnt fan or running an air duster through your vents, to a software fix like re-installing windows (or trying the switch to Linux !!). There is really only about 3/10 machines that come my way with these problems that have genuinely defective hardware issues, so the chances are on your side, good luck!

What files do a hitachi L32HK04U L support as it wont play my file from my usb stick

This tv will not play , wmv, avi, mov, mkv, or divx, the hitachi uses the xvid codec only, which means your video file types must be mp4, and not the h.264 mp4 either....but true mp4 video, if you have a connected usb drive full of movies, best bet is to download "youtube downloader" (free off the internet) install it to your PC, and use the convert feature to convert your movies to the ipad video mp4 setting, with the "same as original " quality ticked....and convert all your movie files to the xvid codec your tv wants, youtube downloader can convert anything, any filetype even flash. trust me this works 100% i know, i have the Tv, and i do know about codecs and scaling..and this will be your best bet guys !!! happy viewing

S5610Y shuts off by itself

Thus far you did well however I believe since I had experienced the same issue with my computer shutting on and off as well. I went and bought some Heat Sink Paste and redid the CPU top and walla no more issue with computer shutting down. You may wish to give this a go. It worked for me. $4.00 fix. Thought I would suggest it. .John

    Fit to disc

    My apologies but I'm not familiar with the Ulead product you use but I hope what I've written below may be of some use

    Fundamentally you need to re encode the AVi to a smaller file size. It seems odd to me that you have AVi files that are too big for a 4.7Gb DVD disc unless you are using a flashy front end. A simple way to convert with minimum input from you would be to use Any Video Convertor Professional to resize the AVi file to a more usable size. By decreasing either or both the Video and audio of the AVI within Any Video Convertor Professional this should sort your problem out. Just ensure you keep the aspect ratio the same if this is what you require.
    There is a free version of Any Video Convertor
