I timed it. Fifteen minutes and it shuts down. At first I thought I had a virus but then I got the blue screen twice. It restarted and I tried to put Win 8 on it. That didn't work so I pulled it out for future research and bought a new HD. It is still shutting down after the 15 minutes as I tried to put an OS on the new HD. I blew it out this morning so all the dust is gone. Fans work, and the power box lights are on....HELP???!!!!

pity you have tried to reinstall

the error code on the blue screen would have told us where the problem lies

as you have changed HDD that eliminates dad hard drive or virus / malware

that leaves - overheat - faulty power supply - bad memory module as most likely causes.

If it's a laptop and you 'blew it out' you prob blew the dust in.
