laptop starts up for 3 sec then shuts off repeatedly

My HP pavillion g series model: g6t-1b00 was working fine until all of a sudden it started to restart on its own. About an hour or two later it shut off and when I turned it back on it stayed on for 3 seconds then shut down again...and it continues doing that until I take out the battery. My laptop is barely 9 months old so it shouldn't have problems like this. I really want to know what the problem is. I'm in school and a laptop is relevant. HELP PLEASE!

Re: laptop starts up for 3 sec then shuts off repeatedly

While there appear to be a number of different causes for the same thing - I just fixed this on a customer laptop by reseating the memory.

 

Follow the standards first:

 

1) Pull the battery and try booting with the AC power supply

2) Pull the hard drive and try rebooting

3) uninstall and reinstall the memory (this is what worked for me, to my great delight...)
