While turning on the laptop the computer runs through normal procedures, and then when all the booting is down it will shut down automatically and reboot itself. Please help. I am not very computer smart. Thank you

Re: Re boots itself
When you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 and it will boot into safe mode.
When in safe mode highlight the option 'Last Known Good Configuration' and press enter.
The pc should now reboot normally, if not you will need your installation cd to do a system repair.

try replacing the thermal grease on your cpu. the BIOS have a protection that restart or shut down the computer/laptop when the cpu get to hot. You can also check if the power suply is working in parameters
Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.
The is something wrong with the booting of the computer. Does it pass the initial BIOS boot screen? Try pressing F8 once every second after pressing the power button and see if you can boot the computer in safe mode.
You need to start up in safe mode you do this by pressing F8 while it is booting up you will then see a screen that says start normal or safe mode pick safe mode if it boots up and it will take a little while then shut down the computer by selecting shut down and then restart this will most likley solve your problem
remove the CPU side door and check Fan is rotating on Processor if not it may not rotate due to heavy dust inside. ( clean it and refix it)
Check SMPS Fan is rotating or not..
If fans or not rotating Heat Builds up then computer shuts down itself.
If both fans are working...Just Open BIOS window by press DEL button continuosly while startup and wait for 2 to 3 minutes If the computer shuts down Itself in BIOS Window also then we can confirm issue with Hardware.
If Computer not shutting down in BIOS Window then issue with Operating System Boot files corrupted.
While Turn ON the system press F8 to enter in Safe Mode.
Open command prompt by clicking on
Start >. RUN >> type cmd >> then press enter.
now type chkdsk /f
now press Y
then reboot PC it fixes the Boot files error then your PC works perfectly.
If you haven't tried it yet, pull the battery out and try booting from the adaptor only.
If it boots normally, then your battery pack may be bad (shorted cell) or the regulator that has the job of charging and monitoring the battery pack while keeping your system running may not be healthy.
If you own any multimeter (at the cost of Chinese DMMs, everyone should own one), check the battery pack for charge.
Under normal conditions, they should measure a couple of percent higher than their rating.
You will have either Lithium Ion or Nickle metal hydride batteries in the pack so should measure some multiple of the nominal cell voltage of one of those types that are respectively 3.6 & 1.2 volts.
Start the computer in safe mode (tap F8 immediately after turning it on until you see the option of how to boot)
If it successfully boots into windows, you have an issue with either driver conflicts and/or viruses. If it still restarts itself, you most likely have a hardware issue (bad hard drive, motherboard, etc)
First try to boot in the safe mode, by repeatedly pressing the F8 key. If it boots into the safe mode, press the start button, shut down then select restart. If it will not boot normally then, repeat booting in the safe mode and once booted go to programs/accessorys/system tools/restore the select a restore point date that the computer was functioning correctly and restore for that date. If it will not boot the safe mode restart the computer with the system cd disk and restore from it. BPCS
