Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT] Sudden XP death

1 Hi group,
3 Trying to set up vmware, unfortunately the PC dies
4 suddenly after booting WinXP. XP boots OK but anywhere
5 between a couple of seconds to about 5 mins afterwards
6 without any warning the PC simply shuts itself off.
7 And when it reboots it doesn't complain about a sudden
8 shutdown, just churns merrily along for a few moments
9 then, clunk, the PC stops cold.
11 This is a fresh install of XP SP1 with nothing added
12 except for the (native)9250 ATI drivers. It hasn't
13 even been on line yet, so it's not a virus.
15 It's on sda1, which was freshly formatted NTFS; the
16 rest of the drive is given over to gentoo which works
17 fine.
19 Be interested to hear from anyone else this has ever
20 happened to.
22 Maxim
