How long has this been happening? Could a System Restore possibly help?

I would also suggest a system files check. Open an elevated command prompt and enter sfc /scannow.

If all else fails, it may be time for a Repair Install.

Good luck!

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. (OEM)

Hi Pauly, I've had similar problem for 7 weeks now, and have had to revert to the RMA process, starting with the PSU (it's replacement is due this week). Your problem could be hardware related (try leaving it in the BIOS setup for a while, and see if it powers off, then you can rule out the OS). Also try swapping components, if you have any spare, and check all connectors.
