Hp xw 6000, keeps shuuting down during initial boot up.

My Hp xw6000 keeps shutting down during its boot up. I can here the scussi drive drivers loading then the system just shuts down. If I imeadiately restart, using normal windows, the pc boots up normally and runs until operator requests shut down. Have installed new PSU but problem still persists. Pc not connected to internet, used for digital image work. I have ran a virus check through system and come back totally clean.
Could it be a bios problem.

New ram not working

Sounds like you bought the wrong kind of memory. It should be DDR PC2100 and it must be ECC (Not None Ecc).

Won't complete booting

Sounds like at the very least, the hard drive is. This is common when a file required by the OS is corrupted, and the OS tries to not damage data so it restarts or shuts down.

Chances are that it is a driver problem, try booting in safe mode by pressing f8 during the initial bot up process and selecting safe mode, with or without networking, if your systems goes in to windows then you have a drive issue, as safe mode loads with only the basic drivers needed to run windows, hope that helps
