Answers :

Hit F8 before boot-up to enter the windows \015\012bootup menu. Select safe mode. You should see a list of drivers \015\012loaded, and then windows should load up. If it doesn't shut down, you \015\012can open the event viewer to see what errors happened when it \015\012automatically shut down.

This should help pinpoint what piece of software is the problem.
Also, if you have just recently added new ram chips, one or more of them could be bad. A service tech would have to check that for you.
