Hello,
I have a formatted hd with the win 7 disk in the cdrom. When I turn computer on, the usual comes up on screen and I press a keyboard key to load win 7. All good to this point. It barely starts reading the cdrom disk (and you can see the files being loaded onscreen), then the computer shuts down.

Here is more info on my problem: I had win 7 installed prior to this happening. I was using the computor and it just shut down. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that when it shuts down, it makes no noises. I thought it may be a virus but after trying various "fixes" I decided to reload windows 7. That's when I get what I wrote on my initial question. I have tried different hard drives and cdroms, but to no avail. Now I'm thinking this could be a hardware problem. When I turn the computer on, the fans are running until it shuts down, but I'm thinking it's a heat problem because the running time decreases each time I restart the computer (hope this makes sense). So....I'm thinking power supply, motherboard, memory, or the intel i3 processor. I'm using the Gigabyte N6505LI-DS4L motherboard.

with my experience with computer i would have to say the most likely cause would be the heat sink and if you have a warrant i would send it back

Are you able to go into BIOS? if so I dont think its the CPU/Heatsink, you have tried diff HDDs so its not that, have you tried different SATA port on the motherboard? In my opinion it sounds like an issue with RAM... go into bios and see if the full sticks are registering.

he says it turns off faster and faster so i don't think its a ram problem cause if it was ram it wouldn't turn on at all

Thats not true it would still turn on, ive had bad sticks of ram in computers that run fine until I do something data intensive than it causes a crash. Ram can also be partially broken whereas a part of the stick does not register. This causes crashes during data use.
