Replace the power supply. Thats usually the first cause for something like that. When does it shut itself on and off? Durring windows startup or just randomly?

if you can boot into safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This should result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.

if you do not get a BSOD and can boot into safemode then:

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Actually....before you boot to safe mode. When you press F8 it will give you a list of choices. Safe Mode, Safe mode with Networking, Safe mode with Command Prompt...ECT.....find the one on the list that says "dissable restart on system failuer" or something to that affect and you won't even have to be in windows to do it. Works just the same as what he said...has the same affect. It's just that it only takes one step....and if you can't get into safe mode....then you can't do what he sudgested anyway.
