... as laptop starts up tap the F8 key which leads you to an option screen.

... select "Safe Mode"

... when in Safe Mode,... WAIT a while to see if it stays on!

... If it stays on continue to a restore point the Pop-up is prompting you to do.

... select a restore point date altering the calender as to when the laptop was working fine.

... If the laptop turned off while waiting it could be a duff battery OR if you have mains adapter plugged in [recommended] it'll be more than likely a cracked solder joint were the adapter pops in.

... to be 100% sure, enter the Bios

... tap on boot-up ESC key [F1, F2 desktops]

... see if it stays on while in bios

... some malware can still turn it off in safe mode

... sorry about delay
