shutting down

My pc keeps shutting down on its own...it just started. after it shuts down if i hit the button enough times it will generally come back on. i have windows xp and an amd athlon 2000+ chip. Any ideas?

If it was restarting on its own I'd say its the RAM.

I had a Dell that did this constantly.

Overheating? Is the fan running?

My 750mhz P3 machine would do this. I still don't know why, it would also lock up on a shutdown attempt. I eventually reinstalled win2000 on a new HD and the problem went away.
