    I'm trying to help out a friend and I'm completely baffled(sp?). Anyway, something happened and she tried to use her system restore disc but when it starts to work it gets to like 15% and then the computer shuts down. Anyone have any idea what's going on?

    I don't think so. It was working fine until she wanted to reformat with her restore disk.

    hmn... Any scratches on the surface of the disk? (upper and silver sides)... Did she complete the whole system restore process?

    Either the disk, or it could also be failing ram. Does she have a bootable system atm?
