Compaq Presario F700 Starts and Stops Repeatedly

My Compaq Presario F700 just suddenly turned off the other day while my son was playing a game on it.  When he tried to turn the laptop back on by pushing the power button all the power light and led lights come on and we can hear the fan starting for exactly three seconds, then the whole laptop shuts off.  Five seconds after that it comes back on and does the same thing for the same three seconds.  This starting and stopping will repeat itself by itself forever unless we take the battery out.  Any ideas on what could be wrong?
