Is it under warranty? Do the fans work? I would let Apple take a look at it, sounds like something serious

Does it boot all the way into the OS and then shut down or while there's still a gray screen on the display? Have you tried booting to the install DVD to run either a hardware test or a scan of the hard drive?
