    I an working on a no name laptop with Win XP installed. The laptop is plugged in but I have removed all peripherals. When I turn on the computer it turns on and may stay on until the desktop has come on and then shuts off or it may shut off within 10 secs of pressing the on button.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Mary

    Have you checked for any dust build up around air vent?

    Maybe overheating?

    Overheating does not seem to be the problem.
