First things first, this is probably in the wrong forum as it's not a Windows XP problem and you might get a better response posting this in one of the hardware forums.

Having said that, first thing you should try, if you have one, is to replace the actual black power cable as there could be something wrong with the cable.

Failing that, nothing else would make the computer suddenly switch off like that except for a faulty power supply inside it. That may be your only possible solution. It's not hard to replace a power supply but if you don't know how to do it yourself you are best to take it to a technician so they can do it for you.
