Specs: Windows xp
My Emachines computer turns on and off by itself. Turns on for about 5 seconds then shuts off for 5 seconds and keeps repeating that action until the computer is unplugged. I just see the E machines logo then it shuts off. I tried tapping the F8 key at the brief startup but nothing happened.

It could be several things. One likely possibility is the power supply. Do you have another one you could try ?

I'll try to get a power supply to replace it.
