TRy resetting the BIOS to default settings and retry.

Also check CPU fan is running could be a fied CPU.

Also check power supply plug to CPU.

And try powering from another PSU. PSU power to CPU failure wold give same error.

If it will not shut down, My guess is MOBO failed

The above may have been due to PSU blowing. As I had same problem
