    Default I got switch off and immediately switch on

    Hello!

    I got IDE WD 80 Gb about 6 years for c: drive (I got 2 drives). Lately my PC got to be frozen a lot of times, I got a lot errors by chkdsk, but all were fixed.

    WD Data Life Tools says the disk is OK.

    Additionally, to chkdsk errors (that has been fixed and after that I got more and fixed them too) I got switch off and immediately switch on (not restart), but switching. Is it bounded with hard disk prroblem, or may be additionally I have PSU problem? Please help!!

    Seems that the PC works without to be frozen, only switching out and on (sometimes)
    Thanks.

    My PC:

    Motherboard GA-P35-DS3 , Radeon HD 2600XT Super ,Processor E6550 , Kingston DDR2 1 Gb 800MHz CL5

    Hard Disks both IDE: WD60 JB, Seagate ST36081 (160 Mb)
    PSU Sweex 350 WATT GOLD
    Optiarc DVD RW AD-7170S (SATA)

    Thanks for help

    It could very well be a power supply related issue. 350 watts is not enough to owrk with your hardware list and corruption of core files is a problem that can occur. Just out of curiosity, did your problems start shortly after you upgraded the mainboard, processor and graphics board?
