The reason you are having this problem is because your power supply may be no good Also if your pc does not have proper ventilation it will shut itself off Make sure the computer is not covered by anything so that the system gets proper air flow use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum the dust off of the power supply fan filter If none of this workks, I suggest getting a new power supply as that is most likely the problem.
