Vostro 3668 Not Turning On/Shuts Down By Itself

Hey, my PC was working as normal 1 day ago, when I came home today, I started hearing sounds from the PC even though I COMPLETELY SHUTTED IT DOWN LAST NIGHT. The fans were spinning and hard drive was making noises but no screen or whatsoever. It does this on a loop. After unplugging and replugging the power cable, I got it working and booted into Windows, but after 8 minutes or so it shut down again. I tried everything I can but its  still the same. I unplugged all the USB devices, changed the RAM but still no luck. I will be more than happy if you guys can help me about this since I have a project I need to do. Thank you.

It sounds like there may be an issue with your computer's hardware, potentially with the power supply or the cooling system. It's possible that the system is overheating and shutting down to prevent damage.

You can try checking the system's internal components to see if anything is loose or damaged. You can also try running a hardware diagnostic test to see if any issues are detected.

If you're not comfortable doing this yourself, it may be best to take your computer to a professional for diagnosis and repair.
