Every time i try to install windows XP Pro x64, It keeps on shutting down by itself at different times. There is no BSOD that shows up, it just keeps on shutting down whenever it feels like. The specs for my computer are displayed in my sig if you need to know the specs

You computer might be overheating. Try cleaning out the case:

Sounds like it might be a HD issue, First I would run a windows Ck disk right click on my computer, then right click on c drive. Then select tools and check disk. Check the two boxes to scan and fix..
Also you can download a cd from the company that made your hard drive. It may be a boot disk, with some nice tools. I have the WD cd, it runs tests on the HD and can format or write zeros.
Anyway check the hard drive out by tests.
If the tests pass and youre having issues, you may try (be sure you have a cd for the operating system) sfc /scannow. Google that and read about it..
