Are you sure it is shutting off? Boot into the BIOS settings (delete at start up) and watch the system temperatures and voltages.

What is the brand and model of the power supply?

Does the computer load Windows and THEN shut off?

Did you apply thermal compound as per instructions?

Have you tried tapping F8, on system start up and booting into safe Mode? See if it allows you to log into safe mode. If not, when you tap F8 on start up and it brings up the advanced recovery menu, with safe mode etc, is "Start up Repair" an option, you may wish to try that if safe mode shuts down also.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

Be careful of any repair (to the installation itself) routine. I'm thinking of data loss - your personal files... If you can get into safe-mode at least, then advise you to copy all your personal files off immediately; typically to dvd, but another external hard drive is nice too. Verify the copies are accessible too on at least one other working system. Then set about "repairing" the installation, secure in the knowledge that your personal files are likewise secure elsewhere.
