      I am using windows 2003 server enterprice edition. I wasn't not able to check system log because system is always shutting down on startup.

              bat or corrupt driver! or a malfunction spyware/virus tool runned at startup.

              Disable Blue Screen Of Death Auto-Reboot
              Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System
              Go to Advanced
              Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
              Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"
              Now you be able to see a error code at startup/login.

              - Unplug every connected device,
              - start in save mode.
              - Check devices in the Device Manager.
              it doesn't work on safe mode
              Does that mean it start w/out proplems in save mode OR it doesn't start at all in save mode?

                Does it keep running if you DON'T logon?
                Does it blue screen or is there an error? (What is the error?)
                Does it indeed reboot or does it lockup and you power cycle it?
                Have you tried a different power supply
                What do we have to ask so many questions about your information starved posts?
