it would really help if you provide your computer hardware specs. what motherboard, power supply, cpu, ram, do you have? etc.etc.etc.
since the computer is shutting down by itself, it could be a power issue. try a spare power supply if you got one. if you dont then i recommend purchasing a good quality power supply such as antec or enermax. you can get these brands from your local computer store.
