Can you get into the bios before it shuts down ? If yes, check temperatures, especially for the cpu. You need to list the specs for your computer. It could be the RAM or power supply.

That's a Windows problem you have there, then, most likely. It doesn't sound like a hardware problem at all.

Somehow, your drivers have been corrupted, or some software is trying to load which is causing Windows to have a 'seizure'. You could spend ages trying to track it down, or you could format the hard drive and install Windows again. you'd lose all your data if you did that.

Try booting Windows in 'Safe Mode' (by pressing the <F8> key while Windows is first loading) and see if it runs that way. If so, it may be recoverable.

Modifying my last post: If it shuts down right before Windows loads, then it could be a software problem as Jessica suggested. However, it still sounds like it might be a hardware issue. Can you get into the bios before it shuts down ?

It shuts down even when I switch hard drives. The hard drive I switched worked for the other computer.
