I would recommend testing each component, only plug in what its absolutly required to start the computer, nothing else. If it still shut down, try to change the HDD to a different one.
mm did you get any noise coming from hard drive i had 2 that went down and allways got clicking noise due to arm jamming

i could do a hdd test to see if that does anything all other stress tests have done only failed after coming out of test but never done a hard disk test
