I cleaned the heatsink of my pc and then the pc turns on, then turns off 5-10 seconds later.

For now I know it is not the following:

Power Supply
Processor

But I can confirm the pc actually works since I saw the screen of the ubuntu boot disk and then it turned off.

Any idea what is causing this?

Found it. The cpu was overheating because the fan had a problem.
