Hi,

Problem: the CPU might be overheating, or the componnents might be getting to hot Please see if you can put an extra fan inside the computer to cool your componnents Also, your MS-DOS path maybe to long.Windows and windows applications frequently add to the directory path.As a fix to this problem, start the computer from a system disk in drive A, or press CRTL C(Or Cntrl Break) before the path statement is reached in the autoexec.Bat file.
