We replaced Fan in R61i Laptop and now it shuts down within 10 seconds of startup.

Used another AC Adapter and get same results.

Since you just replaced the fan, make sure that it spins on power up and that it is absolutely flush with the cpu.  If the motherboard detects that the fan is not spinning or that the cpu is getting too hot (which it will if the heatsink is not making good contact), it will shutdown.

did you also replace the heatpaste, or heat pad?  the fan may need a better contact
also - inspect your work closely, you may have made an error
