PC shuts off shortly after turning on

  1. Greetings,
    Hope I am posting this in the right spot. But anyway, here is my problem. I turn the computer on and it opens windows, etc. but as soon as everything is open the computer shuts down and it just keeps doing this. I don't have time to check anything out because it shuts down so soon after loading. It just started happening out of the blue. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Moonshadow

    Go to Safe Mode command prompt, by continuously pressing F8 at Windows startup.
    Log on to the Administrator account (usually no password)

    Then type on the command line:

    %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

    This will allow you to Restore your computer to an earlier time (when it worked)
