Compuer turns off completely.. then restarts on it's own, then off again

Recommended Posts

So my friend gave me his computer to fix, saying it doesn't turn on. First things first, I cleaned all the dust out, so it's brand new looking at least. I turned it on, and it ran to the "windows wasn't shut down properly' screen, so I chose last good configuration. It turned off, and then about 10 seconds later, it turned on. about 5 seconds after that, it turned off. I tried a couple more times, and same thing. He said this was what it kept doing. I can't get far enough to use the XP repair disk, because it usually shuts down before the bios screen displays itself. I've never come across this, so here I am. Anyone got any ideas?

It could be a bad power supply, do you get any beeps from the speaker??

 

Try re-sitting the RAM, graphics card and any other PCI cards.

If that doesn't work disconnect the hard drive and CD-ROM see if it can stay switched on.
