My computer is shutting down weirdly

Hi All,
From last 2-3 days I'm facing a problem with my desktop.
I have installed WinXP and Linux on my machine. After starting the machine, if I start using Linux, it works fine. But if I go to WinXP, I open any .exe or any .pdf file or any setup or something. My machine shuts down. Means it doesn't displays any message and else but CPU fan stops rotating, monitor turns off. I have to switch off the power supply, again connect it and then only I can reboot the machine, otherwise it doesn't boots up even.😡

Can anyone please help me????

Ok, I will first try repairing my OS.
If still the problem continues, I will uninstall.
I will update if any solutions is working. Till then other suggestions are welcome.

There might be a problem with your SMPS. Drawing too much power might be creating an issue. Still since linux works fine, it's a bit disturbing. Reinstall your OS and do keep us posted.
