well, its running windows xp sp2, 512 mb of RAM on a mecury motherboard. i'v tried to dust it up, removed the RAM and blown out the dust in the sockets but that only hastens the pace at which my system shuts down

I sorted it out. Some one took out my fan and didn't fit it in properly. I took it out blew it free of dust, replaced it properly so that it had contact with the processor and it worked-she's running perfectly.
