my computer is coming on and shuting down ove

September 18, 2011 at 14:01:27
Specs: Windows XP
When I turn on my computer, it starts loading, but before it shows my desk top it shuts it's self down, and starts coming right back up again. It does this over and over until I shut it down manually. If I press the F8 key I can go to a previous date that it worked right and it will come on and I can use it. But as soon as I shut it down and come back later to turn it back on it does the same thing as I described above. I ran a virus scan and it showed treats I did a computer clean, and the threat are gone but still have the same trouble. what do I do?
