    Windows 8 Shuts down and restarts automatically

    Each AM when I start my new HP it runs about 10 or so minutes then shuts down and restarts. After that it runs perfectly. HP thinks it is a hardware problem and says I should take it to a repair shop. Isn't this rather a Windows OS problem?

    It's either overclocking, a defective part, bad bios setting or a driver responsible.

    You can post the results of the log collection tool in the top stick thread of the Crash subforum. That will help us determine what to do about it.

    You're welcome. Enjoy it!

    I was given the motherboard, cpu and ram in my specs for Christmas, which are all better than the P4 setup I was using.

    So, with Christmas money, I also ordered the video card in my specs. It should be here in a few days from Newegg!

    So I enjoy "new" hardware (to me at least) too.
