OK. Let me give you the short version.

My computer just shuts off, then starts up and about 3 minutes later it shuts off again, then starts up and it happens over and over and over.

Im on a laptop right now.


The long version.

At first I thought it was the power supply unit because if I wiggled the cord going into the mobo I could get it to turn off/on/off/on.
I replaced the power supply unit. Didn't work.

I must note that when I did replace the power supply unit I noticed the bottom right hand corner of the plastic doohickey that plugs into the mobo was scortched brown as in burnt brown. Hmmm.
I originally thought it was a short in the Power supply unit and that was the cause, as I said, so I replaced it but the computer is still shutting off/on/off/on over and over.

The fans all seem to run nice and fast so I don't think cooling is a problem.

So that is where I am at.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on here?

I thank you in advance for any responses or suggestions.

Maybe your CPU is overheating?
