PC boot/power issues. Please help.

Specs: None/Windows 7, CPU: AMD FX-6300 6-Core processor black edition RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 1600 MHz PC3 12800 240-Pin DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit
well I'm having a few issues, one is that randomly about every couple of minutes maybe 10 or 15 my computer will just shut down, randomly no warning. At this point my computer has no operating system yet and it's a new build so I haven't gotten any drivers installed yet because I don't really know how to start with that I do already have them downloaded on a flash though. And my second problems is I would like to salvage my older operating system from a different hard drive (Windows 7) but it won't boot but if I try booting again I can get into the Windows dialogue that allows me to get into restore and fix settings and all that, I try to use the fix issue setting, get an error something like 8000xffff or something, I try going back to a snapshot don't have any lmao, try restoring I have two different restor points available I know one of them doesn't work I'd assume the other is the same. If anyone could offer up some suggestions that'd be great thanks.

Also I should probably mention about the automatically powering down if I try to power it back up right after it happens it will just power back off in seconds, I have to leave it for a little while before itll let me work on it again.

The shutdowns could be overheating. If you fitted the CPU yourself did you apply thermal compound exactly in accordance with the CPU manufacturers instructions?

We need the "exact" error for the issue with the other computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I'm like 99% sure that it came with thermal paste pre-applied, but that would make since, and for the error it's 0x8000ffff, the CPU I bought was:

There must be some words with that error too but from what I can make of it I'm afraid it is one of those "could be anything" codes. If you can get it to run long enough see if you can use this to get the temperatures:

The fact that it restarts after a while does make you think it has cooled down.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
