Desktop turns off and on at different times

So my desktop machine has been acting very weird lately. When I turn it on, it turns right off after a few seconds but then goes back on. It does this three or four times until it finally starts up. And every blue moon, it just shuts down without notice. It's not temperature (I already checked that). Could this be a motherboard issue?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are on a Windows machine try playing with the power management setting and set them to never turn off automatically and see if it continues. It could be a power supply issue if you have a lose connection or break in the wire and a bad battery that may not be holding a charge. Provide some more details about your system and we can try and provide further options.

    Some information is needed. Like What OS is there? Is it a single machine or under domain or shared? Full configuration is required. Also what software are installed on your system? However, there is a feature in the newer versions of Windows called fast startup/hybrid sleep that can sometimes cause this issue. Disabling this feature may solve your problem.

    Also you can try to restart in Safe mode and check if that happens again. If it will be fine, then it is required to stop some startup programs that you can find in Windows services. Keep in mind don't stop Microsoft system services.
