Start by telling me all the maker and model number of all these parts, don't miss any:

Video Card
Hard Drive

What was the dad doing when it shut down? Surfing the internet?

How far does the computer get now in the 30 seconds before it shuts down? Does it make it to the Windows desktop in 30 seconds or is that before it even gets to Windows while it is on the loading screen?

Ye ye ye amm
Cpu:intel pentium G630 2.8 Ghz
Motherboard: asrock g41-gs3
Ram: Verico 2gb DDR3 its a taiwan brand
Video caard: Intel x4500 Hd (onboard)
Hard Drive: Seagate 500 Gb
PSU: have no brand!!!i think its around 300W
Case:TVM case

and yes last month shutdown occurs randomly in windows like internet...and casual stuff

and it wont take too long...starts till the starting windows and then off...(before the windows loads)

i cleared cmos becuz my dad put a password on bios by mistake and i could remove that...i put an ic on the Cms Clr on motherboard and when i turned it on password was removed but...this was next issue that i cant even go to windows anymore :(

When you cleared the BIOS, you probably caused the hard drive type to revert to IDE or something.

Try going into the BIOS and see if you can try to find an entry for the hard drive that says one of these things


after you find it, try changing it to one of the others on the list and see if it boots, if not then try the other one that it hasn't been set to yet.

See if that works.
