It might be the power supply is not generating too much power, try to unplug device that are attach to your computer If not than is not the power supply, it a possibility of a Virus call the worm.

Because the way you say that in about 5 minutes the computer shutdown, but I was wonder if it gives a message or warning of shutting down because if does then this is a virus.

boot up in safe mode and update your Anitvirus software and make a full scan while in safe mode.

Another possibility is that you might set up a Schedule Task or the power option (energy power saver) to shutdown your system every five minutes so do me a favor and check this two things by going in the control panel and look for power option and Scheduled task.
