Operating System Version: Winxp Pro
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Amd 2200+, 256 333mhz ram, Asus A7v8x-x MB, ATI Raidon 9600 with catalyst drivers and tryed with stock drivers, 300 watt Pwr Supply, less than 24 hours old. All drivers tryed with original drivers problem occurs, and most recent drivers same thing.

Post no errors, OS start up no errors. MB and CPU temp in normal ranges.
If I am on desktop or surfing no problems detected, running a movie no problems detected. If I run and game either 2d or 3d, system powers off. No warnings, no errors.

I have seen many posting here related to power problems. Searched the net for as many virri killer and detection programs I can find no problems or virri detected. I am at a loss as to what's causing this or how to repair this annoying problem.
Side note I changed the automatic power off feature to disabled, all power settings in control panel are always on. No screen savers in use. Desktop set to 1024 x 768 32 bit, 17in monitor ADI microscan.

PSU is a bit low. Go for at least a 350W PSU, especially around Ati cards and AMD systems.
