My computer kept on shutting down and restarting. I took it to my computer man and he said I had a faulty power supply. He replaced the power supply and I never had the problem again. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Merv. Dear Merv Yes, a bad power supply will cause that too. Because they have a capacitor in there for taming the sine wave from the AC, that is big enough to knock amateurs into next week, they are riveted or spot-welded shut. Luckily they are cheap enough that it is cheaper to replace them than to try and clean the dust bunnies out or to replace the fan inside them. It is quite rare nowadays that a power supply fails. Have FUN! DearWebby
A man parked his car at the supermarket and was walking past a row of empty shopping carts when the middle aged cart-girl standing there called after him, "Excuse me, don't you want a cart?" "Nah," he answered. "I'm only after one thing." As he walked into the store, he heard her murmur, "Typical male!"

A doctor was vacationing at the seashore with his family. Suddenly, he spotted a fin sticking up in the water and fainted. “Darling, it was just a shark,” said his wife when he came to. “You’ve got to stop imagining that there are lawyers everywhere.”
