First off, we'll need to reseat most of the parts connected to the motherboard. That includes memory, video card, audio card and the others. What you need to do is to remove everything from the motherboard, connect them one by one. Once you have connected a part/device, try to boot it up. Do this until you have isolated the problem.
The hardware that is common to this issue that you're having is the memory stick. But, we really need to isolate the cause of the problem.
press and hold power button until the machine shuts down completely then wait a few seconds and press the power button again it should power up normally if not there could be a problem with your power source, processor or RAM.
Could it be overheating, and automatically shutting-down, to avoid damage?
Shut it down.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed air, and give your computer a "blow-job", shooting compressed air into every orifice, to remove all the dust that could be acting like a layer of "insulation", preventing your computer from cooling itself.
I suspect if its starting the boot process then shutting down.
Problem may be
1: Virus or Spy ware.
2: Two antivirus programs installed. I
3 Installation improper.
4 Or hard drive or bad Memory ( Memory Failed)
5: Mother Board damaged
