Are you using a offboard video card? If you please make sure you unplug any external video card that is plugged in. If you have a offboard video card please make sure your monitor is plugged into that video card and not the onboard which is normally located near the power, Audio in/out, and Ethernet port on the back. Most external video cards are on the back located lowest to the base. This could be caused by having a bad video card.
Another possibility is your Hard Drive has gone and you will need to purchase a new one.

Bring your computer to any computer store and ask them to check if they can detect any memory on your hard drive and if there isn't any present, that means your hard drive has fried (Happens a lot). Personally all this informaiton you have provided me leads me to believe it is your hard drive.

Hope you get this problem fixed and if you have any other question's, please do not hesitate to ask. Please don't forget to rate, Thanks! :)

Hello I have a problem with my HP Pavillion m9277. When I switch the computer on it goes ok for about 5-10 seconds, cuts out for 5-10 seconds and then starts up again, but there is also nothing happening...

Hi Friend, As you have mentioned that your system goes off after 5-10 seconds and turns on again. I would recommend you to please unplug all the cables from the desktop and press and hold the power button of the system for 30 seconds, release it after 30 seconds and make the connections again.
Start your system again and check if your issue is fixed or not.
Also I would like you to check after turning on the system do you get any beeps from the system after which it goes off
