Answers :

Do you get a beep code while it is loading? Memory card /motherboard and cpu problems normally advertise themselves with a beep code. You can then google the code against your motherboard.

If you have already cahnged the power supply then it sounds more like your cpu is overheating. The more things you have plugged in, such as hard drive cd drive and so on, the quicker it will overheat and cut out.
I get this at work occasionally.
To see if this is the case boot to your set up screen. Somewhere within there there will be the option to see what temperature your cpu is running at. Leave it going for a while and just watch it.
I think generally if it runs in the 40's or 50's then there is no real problem with cooling. If it goes up to 60's and above(depending on the cut off set by the manufacturer) then you have an issue there.
If this is the problem its quite easy to fix.
If you know what you're doing, then check your fan is clean. Then replace the thermal grease between your fan and cpu to make sure the heat is dissapating properly.
In you r bios you may also have the optino to alter the speed at which your fan works, just in case thats not doing the job
Hope this helps
Insure your "boot sequence in the bios" is set to see your cd/dvd or maybe inadvertently be set to find the operating system on a "network" which will cause it to boot to the bios then idle awaiting connection to a network which of course doesn't exist. just a thought
