Pull everything out of the slots and disconnect everything from the back except the keyboard and mouse. If the problem still occurs, disconnect the disk drive. If it STILL occurs, you have either a motherboard or a power supply problem. If you can get the computer to boot without shutting down, start adding the peripherals back, one at a time and see when the problem comes back.
Yes, as long as the rest of the computer is still intact (eg. motherboard, hard drive etc.) You can either: Get a new power supply for the computer and everything should work as normal (power up and everything) Take out the hard drive and put it into another computer to recover the data (there are many ways of doing this, try googling it - that should help.

By a pen drive I'm guessing you mean a USB flash drive like thing. When you plug the pen drive in, your computer should automatically detect it and open up a window that has its contents.
