Specs: Windows 10
On many occasions my computer will try to start up and after about 5 seconds will shut off and re-start. After about maybe in some cases it will try 6 times before fully booting up.
Can anybody through any light on this please?
Could it be that one day it will not start up at all then all is lost or is it the start of something big?

"or is it the start of something big?"
Something is not right, so you are getting a warning.

Once you do get it to start up, run chkdsk.

Without any details, I'd suspect the power supply

I agree with Razor, had a similar issue with someone's machine recently, at first I suspected heatsink and fan, but turned out to be a faulty PSU.

if you have access to a spare or can borrow one try that, otherwise see if you can check the voltages of the PSU with a voltmeter.
