Start up error

  Drazpaz 14:48 08 Apr 03

When I start up my desktop it will suddenly turn off while it is starting itself up, it seems to randomly happen at different points of the startup each time. Rarely will it ever fully load up into windows.(its a home built system)
What is wrong and what do I do?

I'm not an expert on this but it could be a loose connection or a failing component. It could also be caused by the CPU overheating or a corrupted driver.

Check out your connections, make sure the CPU fan is running, remove and reinsert the RAM chip(s). Also try starting in safe mode which if it then loads OK could indicate a problem driver.
