    When I start the computer, it will start up fine.. but when I log on to my account it will say computer standing by.. and shut itself down. It doesnt have a virus or anything. Does anyone know what the problem is or how I fix it?

    have you tried safe mode? :dunno:

    does it goto standby again even after you hit the power button to get it out of standby?

    sounds like a virus or a borked windows install...

    take the drive out and put it in another computer for a virus scan... If it's clean, time to pull out your windows cd and do a fresh install.

    Yeah.. I tried safe mode. Didn't work. No matter what I do it will keep restarting itself. It will run for 2 minutes max and then stand by and restart.

    you might have to reformat or at least try and reinstall the OS drivers... That helps most of the time with wierd windows problems... So boot up using the Cdrom and just do a repair install
