thn for reply,
i have checkd event viewer but only error i cud find was "Faulting
application drwtsn32.exe, version 5.1.2600.0, faulting module
dbghelp.dll, version 5.1.2600.2180, fault address 0x0001295d."

as i am a pc newbie i decided to hand my pc in to local pc shop. They
phoned back saying it was infected with 37 virus so i got it back and
tried it at home it booted up normally first time, installed zonealarm
and then had to reboot for it to work. then i decided to connect to the
internet using my bt adsl usb modem in which a second of connecting my
system shut down by itself. once i tried pressing the power button it
starts up (fans, hd, led,and drives)and then powers off sumtimes 3,4,5
seconds of powering up. sometimes i can get onto windows desktop for it
to shutdown and repeat the process above. so i again gave it ack to pc
shop who ran the pc for 2-3 days non stop with no problems along with
the modem.  

i have taken of autorestart when a problem is detectd in the system
properties an for the first time when booting up i was given the a blue
screen sayin about windowsn will shut down to prevent damage and a
message saying DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS or EQUAl it said a bit more but the
power went off before i could note anything else down.

The cpu temp is around 48-55 while playin games, cpu fans running at
around 2961-2987rpm, mobo temo 30,hard drive temp 34.
voltage values : cpu core 1.66v, +3.3 V     = 3.26 V,+5 V = 4.89 V,
+12 V = 12.60 V,+5 V Standby = 4.92 V

does this sound like  a faulty psu problem?

You're a newbie?! Giving the voltages on PSU rails and CPU temp,
doesn't sound like any newbie i've ever heard of.

Don't assume it's PSU yet. It's not te most likely thing.

If you got a blue screen while you were booting up, then you should try
a Windows Repair.  Perhaps the virus corrupted some windows files.
Either way, do a windows xp repair. It requires the win xp cd.

Note. The CD has 2 repair options. ignore the "repair from recovery
console option". you gotta press ENTER as if you're gonna install
windows, ten it'll give you the repair option you want. Those
instructions at that link explain.
