Windows xp powers down for no reason

I have windows XP and yesterday it started to just shut down as soon as the menu came on. I powered back on and soon after menu was up the screen changed to a total screenrandom patern that had no words or picture but not the blue screen of death. What could it be and is there a fix. I would even do the process of putting the computer back to original factory settings if I could remember the process
