Hello,
I have a e-machines (yeah... ugh) t5254 desktop computer.
This computer will shut down mid-boot. Every time.
I have cleaned the heatsink, reapplied thermal paste, tested with known good memory,unplugged the dvd rom, tried a known working PSU, have even tried booting puppy Linux with the HDD unplugged.
Each of which have resulted in the same outcome starts to boot and crashes.
Any other ideas?

Take out everything and try it on a table. Without the RAM first and check if your CPU fan is working. Then add a stick of RAM and so on.

i dont know if u ever solved this but i was having this same issue.

Get inside in safe mode which it probably will boot up the same as with mine.

which means that is not the power supply , ram or hard drive.

go to device manager
disable the second processor
and ur good to go.

boot up normally and it should go in all the way to windows normally
