It doesn't matter what it's doing. It could be idling or I could be gaming or just browsing the internet. It'll all of a sudden shut down. I have to go to the main power in the back and switch it to off then on again. Then I turn on the power in the front to turn it on again. There are no error messages at ALL.

Specs:

Athlon 2200
513 ddr333 ram
gforce4 ti4200
Windows XP Home (Service Pack 2)

How do I fix this random shutdown problem?

What's your PSU rated at?

Sounds like a bad ram or faulty PSU.

Just shutting down suggests bad power supply.

true that, could definitely be the power supply. i would try another power supply if i were you. try a friends or go out and buy one but buy a named brand one like antec or enermax. keep the receipt so you can return it if the problems persist. im thinking its the power supply though that is really bad.
