[Scaleo T] problem installing XP

Postby giglebuns » Thu Feb 15, 2007 17:44

I recently reformatted my hard drive but seem to be having a problem re-installing XP.
The refomat happens fine but when the PC tries to install XP from the disc, the PC just turns itself off. I have tried this a couple of times and the same thing happens. It stays on fine when reformatting but after a couple of minutes of installing XP it just switches off. :(
I also had another disc which was unused so I tried it with this disc in case there was a problem with the one i was using, but again the same thing happens.
Can anyone give me any suggestions as to what the problem could be or how I can resolve this.
Many Thanks :D

Did you upgrade any parts of the pomputer (graphic card, etc.)?
It could be just a lack of power reason...

When you are installing XP, your DVD drive is spinning and reading, your HDD is spinning and reading/writing, your CPU is full-speed and then your XP is trying to test video... PSU is out...

My pc kept on switching off when in use, the heat sink & fan were covered in dust. You can check the temp in the bios.
