Computer shuts down during XP installation

I'm putting together a computer from old parts I've got lying around the house (problem solved? :p  ). So far I've got an ABIT KV7 motherboard, an AMD Athlon 2500+ CPU, a couple of sticks of 512 mb ram, nvidia GeForce 7600 GS, Belkin Serial ATA PCI Card and a Western Digital 500GB hard drive (SATA) and an old Aopen 250W power supply.

I get to where it's just finished inspecting my hardware, but then it either restarts or just shuts down. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

with old parts it could be anything. is the cd your using an original copy or a burnt copy of XP? (i'm not asking if it is a legal copy or not)
