computer keeps shutting down

I have built a computer that has the ASUS P5AD2 E Premium motherboard. Every connection is perfect, the system boots up. However, when I try to setup Windows XP onto the SATA Hard drive after formatting the system shuts down immediately during file copying. It is not a heat problem I have looked into that. I have no idea how to disable the overclocking in the BIOS as I feel this may be causing the shut downs. I have heard that many other people are having problems with this motherboard too. Can anyone tell me what settings I should have in my BIOS that may solve this problem?

Have you tried going into the BIOS and setting the default or safe mode ?.
This should clear any overclocking setings you have, then (if the problem is cured) gradually reset your bios to the settings you want

Don't forget to make a note (or print out) your bios settings first), so you know what to adjust.

If this fails to solve the problem, I would suspect a power problem or possibly weakness on the mobo or memory. Does the re-boot occur after a period of time or at a set point in the install process?
