Ah, I forgot to mention that this laptop is out of warranty too.
Many thanks... again.
A Toshiba Satellite, 1.6GHz, P4, 256mb, DVD/CD-RW and 30gb HD with XP Pro just powers off without warning. It will come back on if you reboot the system. A new power cord was purchased to see if that was the problem, but it continued anyhow.
Any ideas. It is a far too new of a computer to not be able to get past this point.
