    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.

My Samsung Galaxy Fame is authomatically switching it self off

First things first, check to see if the battery is ok. Give it a good charge and try powering on. If that does not work, switch it off, remove the battery and leave it for sometime - the longer, the better.

Place the battery back and power-on. If the problem continues, you need a re-set.

Screen goes off

disconnect the cable going in to the DVD/VCR combo and see if that clears up the issue

or else

Try connecting your cable box to the TV with component cables (green, blue, red) instead of HDMI/DVI. It sounds as if it is a HDMI or HDMI/HDCP related issue and component video would eliminate the issue.

Try this:

With the AC adapter and battery installed and it will not power up remove the adapter and the battery. Then plug in the
AC adapter after both have been removed for 30 seconds and let the laptop set for 30 seconds and then unplug the AC adapter and then slide in the batter within 15 seconds and try to start the laptop.
