Laptop wants to load up then shuts off

I have a Compaq Presario 1700 laptop that was given to me when I turn it on it begins to load up then shuts off after appx 30 seconds. The moniter doesn't come on at all, but you can hear the hard drive working until it shuts off again. What could the problem be? Would it be worth it to repair?

Turns off

That is heat-related symptom.
Use a can of compreseed air to clean the air vents.
Don't use the laptop on a carpet, rug, or pillow, etc.

You may have to open the laptop and add a small amout of thermal paste between the cpu and the heat sink. Let us know if the air worked, first.
