Everytime I turn on my PC which is only about 6months old. It turns on then turns itself off after a few seconds then a few seconds later turns itself back on again. Can anyone help me is this a big problem?

hey lil boy blue,
I did all your things but not in that order so I did the 4 second thing and the diagnostic tests before writing the original post they all passed and didn’t help. I then spent ages online speaking to an advisor whose fox didn’t help and as you can imagine I lost the connection as I have to turn the PC off to check if it worked. So I read your response again and the thing that stopped it doing it was holding the power button down for 15 seconds. Now it doesn’t do it at all and I just press the button as normal. No idea what magic that is but thank you 🙂
