Default pc shuts down by itself

When my computer turns on, it just all of a sudden turns off. Does anyone know why? or maybe its a virus?

Need more info-

-Like Raff said, how far does it get before shutting down?
-Is there a set time?
-Try going into BIOS to see if it will shut you down from there.
-Any Beeps or bad sounds?
-Image on Monitor?
-has anything been added to machine? Software or hardware?
