My windows 7 would just automatically shutdown within ~1-5 minutes after start up.

For example, I start up PC>log in>start browsing net>ALL OF A SUDDEN SCREEN WOULD GO BLANK (have experienced either entirely blue, white and black)>while screen is gone, the hard drive would probably run for another 20 secs before shutting down.

But then when I start up the PC immediately again (after it shutdown), the issue goes away and windows run fine.

What is wrong with my PC? Thanks a ton for the help!

No BSOD screen. When it happens, the screen just goes completely blue or white with no text and then it shuts down.
