    When my power supply was on it's way out, I would get random shutdowns. Since I've replaced it, I haven't had any problems.
  3. I have an Athlon XP 2600 with a crappy heatsink and sometimes the CPU will overheat and the screen will just go black. Try installing something like Motherboard Monitor to see what your CPU temp is.
