    Windows XP PC getting shutdown when earphones are plugged in.

    I have a Macbook Pro 13 with 2.5GHz and 2.7GB RAM with Windows XP installed on it via Boot Camp. When I try to plug in my earphone or switch on/off the AC power the system shuts down suddenly without any ‘shutting screen’ or error message. Why is this happening?

    The problem could be with your hardware device. There might be some problem of short circuit that may be switching off the system as a part of ensuring protection to your laptop. You could check the hardware devices with a technician. There might also be an issue of sudden discharge of power. You could switch off the system send then connect it to power and switch it on to see if the problem persists. There could also be a problem of power disruption like pulling the ac cord onto the desktop or other ac appliance to see a sudden power disruption. Regarding the head phone shorting might be the culprit.

    Dear friend,
    The same problem occurred with me once. This is definitely a problem with your earphone. Your earphone is damaged .
    You should replace your earphone immediately to avoid damage to your PC or laptop. To confirm this try to use earphone
    on other system and check the problem if it is there.
    Thanks!

    please try with some other headphone
    it might be that headphone is the problem creator
    if the problem does not solve there might be problem with your hardware
    this might be happening because the headphone is completing the circuit and affecting the power supply and cutting it down
