PC shuts down at startup screen on first boot but always boots ok second boot into safe mode

Any ideas on this one?
I have formatted and reloaded windows xp .. from cold, the first time I start the pc, as soon as the first windows xp logo appears on the screen the pc shuts down. I reboot into safe mode, then restart and the pc is fine from then on. I can restart, shut down, and pc will start no problem.
I follow this procedure every time, so I can use pc ok, but any ideas why this may be happening? Have tested with different hard drive, different psu, to no effect, always behaves like this!
