Hi !

let me make some additional remarks:

Well, this doesn't cause a proper shutting down Lisa. I don't believe, that this is an overtemp-problem at all.

Yes, but this will not solve the problem :-)

If you want to run your Lisa with an internal hard drive, you must have an 1.8A PS. Everything else makes no sense. Unplug the HD and try to boot your Lisa from disk(s), it should not shut down. If she does, then remove one Memory-Board if you have two inserted and interchange the Boards, perhaps there's something like a "Stack-Overflow" due to a weak Mem-Board, which will cause the Lisa to reboot. Of course it IS NOT a "Stack-Overflow", but I don't know the english word of that technical expression :-)

I speak much better german than english :-)
