People seem to think its the PS but I don't know.

Sounds like something to do with your CPU or Mainboard.

Overclocking problems? Maybe you should revert your BIOS settings to default. If you didn't do any overclocking then the hardware might be damaged. It's hard to determine what it is without any tests but I would say that its either mainboard or RAM. I wouldn't say its PSU.

Grab a copy of memtest86 (its on any Ubuntu distribution CD) and test your memory. The test should run for 3 passes or until an error is detected. You might then try to swap the RAM chips. It's possible that only one of them is damaged, if you have more than one.

There is also a very slight chance that your computer is overheating, although I wouldn't count on it. Open up the casing and clean everything.

One last thing, although it is a longshot, but it is possible:
Graphics card. When computer boots into Windows it switches to a higher resolution mode and kicks in the graphics card driver. If your card is damaged or your driver is faulty the computer might shut down, either to protect the hardware from short circuiting or because it's simply broken. So try using a different graphics card.

Alternatively take your computer to a shop. They get paid to fix problems like these.

Did you put any gas in it? sometimes the best solution is the simplest.

P.S. Are you using a legit copy of your OS?
