About last week, I was just browsing on the internet and suddenly the computer shut down unexpectedly. The computer restarted shortely after that, and about 5 seconds later, it shut down again. It kept on restarting and shutting down 5 seconds later.
After 3 hrs, it finally started up and I was able to go on the desktop screen. At first I thought it wasn't going to happen again, but suddenly, after an hour or so, the computer turned off without any warning!
Then it kept on restarting and shutting down after 5 seconds and kept on doing that. Sometimes it doesn't shut off after 5 seconds and manages to go to the desktop screen, but it always shuts down unexpectedly.
It's been happening over a week now, and today, my computer wouldn't start at all. I pressed the power button but it wouldn't do anything. When I unplug the power cord on the back of my computer and reconnect it, the computer turns on, but it shuts down after 5 seconds.
I read some articles about why this could be happening. I thought it was the heating problem so i opened up the computer and cleaned almost everything. I know it can't be a virus because I scanned the computer when I was able to use it for a short period of time. I don't know whats going on! Please help me!!!
