Answers :

Hi !
\015\012How much time(seconds) it takes to shut down after you turn it on?
\015\012
First try to put your battery out and then try to boot on AC power only. It might be an bad power supply and empty battery that can't be charged.
If you have the same problem, then check if the power button is damaged or dirty and stays pressed even when you release it.
\015\012Find if you can hear some noise from the fan(s) inside and check if the cooling holes are closed with dirt and dust. Might be the fans are not running or fan holes closed that make some components (e.g. processor) to get wormer than they should be!
