Solved!

MY computer shuts down a minute or so after startup

MY computer shuts down a minute or so after startup.

 

I get to log in and as right after that it just shuts down.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi
PLEASE POST ANY RESULTS.
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).

Just a couple of notes, I am trying to install a different operating system, chromium with cloud-ready, while I am able to start up from a USB drive, the computer shuts off half-way through the process.

 

I don't think is the hard drive.

 

Even before I try the new OS, the computer would let me log in to windows and it would shut down shortly after.

It looks like it was a hard drive issue. While i was on the diagnostics I ran a hard drive test, while it didn't finish and recommended a new hard drive. Seems something happened and I was able to install the new OS and the PC is working fine now.
