    This happens to me too. It is not power source related. After a few seconds it will turn off again. Every now and then it will make it through and I can keep my computer on and it will be fine. I prevent it from going into Standby mode because the screen will not turn back on many times and I'm back to square one...

    I have tried memory conflicts and removing components. None solve it. I am hoping my motherboard is not fried.

    Another note... for some reason, when I power it on, the power button/computer does not try to turn on for a few seconds... There is a delay. ??? I am very confused.

This usually happens because the battery power is too low. Are you sure it is charged? Perhaps the DC power jack is damaged and it is not charging.
