Hard drive cable replaced, shuts off after loading at apple symbol

Initially my computer was having the flashing folder pop up problem. I took the harddrive out and hooked it up with an external hard drive with a USB.

My computer booted fine then, so I figured it was the HD cable.

I replaced the cable. and now my computer will start to load with the apple symbol and a loading bar underneath. Once the bar is full my computer shuts off.

What should I do next?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
