It's doubtful the cpu could overheat in that short amount of time. Nor is it likely the hard drive. Could be the power supply not providing enough power. Really can't tell you much from here.

i think its the power supply too. i think its gone bad. well. it runs the post test then it shut off. i check the cables and the fans. they are fine and the fans are running but it shuts off. if its the power supply, how much will that cost or should i just buy another console?

I can't help you too much with that other than to say a new power supply would be the thing to get if that is what's wrong. I suggest you do some research and check with your computer's manufacturer. It shouldn't cost anything near what a new computer would cost.
