Computer Shuts Down after Powerup (but only before Windows)

By reginald_stanton ·
My computer shuts down randomly after powering up, but only before Windows starts to load. After Windows starts to load, its stable (no shutdowns)! This behavior just started (ran without this incident for years). I'd like to believe its hardware, but there's that stability after Windows starts loading and the fact that no new devices have been added. In addition, its also stable after Linux starts loading. Is this some kinda ACPI or APM thing. USB devices with lights stay lit after power down (some go off if the power cable is removed and replugged back after a few minutes).
