Laptop shuts down frequently

Posted by Alisande (My Page) on

My laptop (Pentium III, running Windows XP) doesn't get a lot of use. This week I used it to go online while my other computer is unplugged while a room is remodeled. It keeps giving me the message that the system will shut down in 60 seconds (Status Code 1073741819). Then it reboots and a message appears that LSA Shell encountered a problem and needed to close.

I updated my virus protection and made sure my Windows critical updates were complete.

Any idea what else I can do?
