Hi glassman, Welcome to the GeeksToGo forums.

If your system starts to load and shuts itself off before showing you a Windows logo or loading screen then there is probably something physically wrong with your system. Eliminating the RAM and Harddrive, my first guess is that either the fans aren't working properly (or are clogged up with dust) and your computer is shutting itself to prevent damage from overheating, or there is a short circuit somewhere else in the hardware.
