If it turns off just seconds after you turned it on, make sure the CPU fan is spinning.

To expand on what emerald said, did you build it yourself? Did you put thermal paste on your cpu before putting the fan on? If the fan had the thermal paste pre applied, did you remove the plastic cover over the thermal paste? And you do need to expand on just a second, is it literally a second, or is it closer to 10?

if its between 5 and 10 seconds its the cpu overheating. if not - then its a motherboard/power supply issue.
