so on a ~5 year old HP desktop with Vista, the computer cannot stay on for longer than 10 minutes, not even in safe mode. it simply resets, goes into "Windows did not shutdown properly" message at the boot menu. i've checked all vents, everything is clean and there is enough thermal paste on the cpu, and the fan is working. do you guys think a fresh install of windows 7 would solve this easily? if not, what can the problem be? thanks in advance!
Its a 5 year old laptop..(Almost on its way to heaven = quite old)
