PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XP home version
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: HP Pavilion 513c
Error Messages: No error messages


The system powers down, but not off. Kind of like hibernation.
I then have to reboot, does the same thing.
What I've tried:
Added memory
Replaced the fan
Relaced the heat sink
Replaced the processor chip
Tried another hard drive, acts the same.
Tried system recovery, got halfway through and back to power down.
Now when it runs for the standard 30 seconds, it says run setup again
and once again, powers down. Both fans quit, the cpu fan stops first. Hope someone can help!
Thanks!

Sounds like a PSU problem to me. Try running off of a different power supply see what happens. If you get the same problem I'd have to guess it was the motherboard.

I think I have it narrowed down to the power supply.
I took it out and cleaned it, the system ran for a little longer than previously.

You should be able to pick up a PSU at your local shop for under $30. I'd recommend getting a 400 watt, 350 at minimum.
