Thank You!! for posting your Question.My name is XXXXX XXXXX today I will assist you to solve or identify your problem.

Do you mean it restarts or completely powered off and you have to use the power button to power on the PC ?

computer starts as normal for a couple of minutes,then powers down

it will then start & stop without touching on its own .pressing the power button makes no difference

Please disconnect the power cord from the PC then, wait for 5 mins. after that let me know the result.

it makes no difference

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX check the PC after connecting the power cord with another wall socket in another room, because I have seen many problems like this, caused due to the wall socket.

thanks for trying, i will take pc to a repair shop,

Sorry Willia, I could not get back to you quickly, as I was offline at that time. Unfrotunately this is a hardware fault and most probably the mother board or the internal power supply unit is defective. Unless those parts are removed from the PC and checked separately, it is not possible for anyone to tell, which one is defective.
