It's probably not shutting down, but restarting.  Look at this site for possible explanations and resolution: http://aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.php

If the machine shuts down within seconds of turning on, this can be due to the cpu heatsink fan not functioning or the power supply failing.  You will have to check if the fan is plugged in correctly and working by opening up the case.  It could also be the power supply, in which case you need to try to install another one that is at least as powerful.

Also check the power on/off button to see if it is stuck in one position.  You can switch the connection with the reset button to test this.

You need to replace the fan - it's sounds broken.  It's probably a 3-wired one, and you need one of the same size as the original so that you can install it in the same location.  If you have an AMD cpu, this has to be done or you will burn up the cpu, but Intel cpus need it too.
