    On that old of a computer, there may be a build-up of dust/dirt covering everything inside which causes it to overheat and shutdown (to keep from starting a fire). Once it cools a bit, it tries to power up again.

    Another problem with many older computers is the cheap/flaky power supplies that were used in them. Replace it with a decent one and it'll run fine.

    The Gateway GT5620 desktop appears to be a 2007-era model which originally come with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.

    Without us being there to see if it's a hardware issue or a software issue, it's difficult to know why it's turning on and off.

    At this point, I tend to lean towards it being a hardware issue.
