Re: computer shuts down
two things to do:
1. Do a CHKDSK /F on your hard drive to make sure there are no errors. You
can do this by right-clicking on the drive in Windows Explorer. Then choose
Properties/Tools/Check now and make sure the option is checked to
automatically fix. It will require a reboot. During the reboot process,
CHKDSK will run and will likely fix errors. Watch to see if it does. (If
there are many, you may have to reinstall some things or even do a Repair on
Vista. Hopefully, this will not be the case.)
2. Regardless if errors are fixed, check the nvidia site to see if there are
any updated drivers. Early Vista drivers can be the cause of a lot of Vista
errors.

Good luck.

Re: computer shuts down
TAKE IT BACK. A one week old computer should not be behaving like this.
