I have seen the power switch itself on some pc's stick when turning them off, or be depressed when shuting them down and signal the pc to turn backon. Check your power switch and make sure its functioning correctly.
First, it would help to know a little about your system. Are you running XP? The major cause of reboot instead of shutdown is Roxio software. If you have it installed, you might note that the light on your CD/DVD drive stays green throughout the process. Alternatively, you may have "wake on LAN" turned on -- but this is unlikely unless you've been fiddling with BIOS settings.
If it's Roxio causing the problem, you can find a patch here: http://www.roxio.com/en/support/ecdc/

You can take it to a computer repair shop so they can extract the files you want, The problem is a motherboard issue, the DC jack in the laptop may have broken free, this will require a technician to evaluate the hardware.
There might be a possibility that the battery is not making good contact
with the laptop's charging circuitry. To eliminate this possibility as a
root cause of the battery not charging, turn off and unplug the laptop,
take the battery off the laptop, and using a dry tooth brush, scrub in
between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on
the battery it self. When done, put the battery back into the laptop,
plug it, and turn it on.
Machine is going into standby. When you open the lid, press the power button for about two seconds. the machine should come back to full operation and after logging in, you should be back exactly where you left off. I have similar model I am using now to answer your query and I have just done this. No problem. Good Luck, Ian.

depending on how old the system is and how hard it was used on battery the battery may be old and dying and may need to be replaced, from my experince ive seen laptop batterys only last about a year at best
Turn off the laptop completely. Unhook the battery and ac adaptor. Go ahead and reseat the memory just to make sure its seated properly. Then go ahead and only hook up the ac adaptor and turn it on to see what happens. If that doesn't work then turn everything of and put the memory in the other slot and then turn the laptop on to see if you get video then, if not then your motherboard is bad.
If you are not afraid to open the box, the simple fix would be to remove the cpu battery(looks like a quarter) for about 30 seconds and replace, then boot up. At that point it will ask for information such as date and time, but then you can access the bios
