Power just switches off

I load windows and then the power just cuts out. I am using a surge protector extension and the BIOS CPU Temp Sensor is working and the shutdown has been disabled. Any ideas?

Had similar problem with a machine cutting out shortly after boot up and it was a defective PSU - nay chance this could be the problem?

It now just gets to the Windows XP logo and then restarts.

My PC powers down then starts up again then after about a minute powers down again then about thirty seconds later switches itself back on again. Any ideas?
