I just built a new computer and last night it worked fine when I powered it on. I tried to start it up this morning, it gets through detecting all the drives then starts to load windows, then shuts off. I am at my wits end with this thing. I am not a pro, but I know basics.Can anyone help?

Sounds like a possible CPU overheating issue. Make sure the CPU fan is running and the heatsink is PROPERLY attached and seated.

No not a hardware issue, if it was you would not be able to boot into safe mode. Sounds like a possible corrupt OS install. What OS are you running?

Also since you can boot to safe mode, check the event logs for any error or warning messages.

start>control panel>admin tools>event logs. You will have system, application, and security logs. Check those for any issues.
