OK then lets uninstall SP3 and try it without. It may be a faulty install that is causing all this.

These methods are how Microsft suggests to uninstall SP3

Method 1: Use the "Add or Remove Programs" item in Control Panel

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Copy and then paste the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER:
appwiz.cpl
3. Click to select the Show Updates check box.
4. Click Windows XP Service Pack 3, and then click Remove.
5. Click Finish to restart the computer after the removal process is complete.



Method 2: Use the hidden $NtServicePackUninstall$ folder

1. Click Start, click Run, type c:\windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$\spuninst\spuninst.exe in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. When the Windows XP Service Pack 3 Removal Wizard starts, click Next.
3. Follow the instructions on the screen to remove Windows XP SP3.


Method 3: Use the System Restore process
Note Before you use System Restore, make sure that you have restarted the computer at least one time after you installed Windows XP SP3. By restarting the computer, you allow for any remaining servicing processes to finish.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Copy and then paste the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER:
%systemroot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe
3. Click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
4. Click the date on which you installed Windows XP SP3, and then click Installed Window XP Service Pack 3 in the Restore Point box.
5. Click Next, and then follow the instructions on the screen to remove Windows XP SP3




If after uninstalling SP3 and everything works fine for a day then you can reinstall SP3

Even though SP3 did not install it could have started which should leave the entries in the above places. Did you check to see if they are there or not?

OK have you tried to install it again and if so what were the results?
I am beginning to suspect a faulty PSU or Motherboard at this point.
The only other option is the video card drivers.

Why haven't you activated windows?
That should have been done during installation.

have you tried to insert a cd and see if it shuts down now?

Activate it and lets see if that helps.
I didn't realize you had not activated windows yet.

I'm confused did you put in a serial key during installation?
If so then activating should not be a problem.
Is this a Genuine Microsoft XP installation disk and if not where did it come from?
