My old computer a compaq presario running win/98
keeps shutting down within 30 seconds with the message on screen- Power Save Mode off mode -
with a loud click from what seems to be the hard disk - has it given up on me or has anyone got any ideas???

Check fans for any problems - it may be an overheating issue (but I doubt it).

Try safe mode (press F8 at startup) and see if it works ok. If so, go to start, run, msconfig and see what you can disable there.

Thank DS - got home tonite and switched on -fan running ok - got to desktop then it shut down-re-started and pressed F8 but all i got was 42 301 keyboard error, chose safe mode to start it then ran MS Scandisk and got to safe mode opening screen then shutdown. ps dont think it a virus as my daughter does not use it on the internet- reading previous problems could it be the PSU?? only guessing - will try shaking it before i bin it.
