Before I went to sleep for the FIRST time i turned off my computer by pressing the power button ONCE not HOLDING it. So it turned off normally. When I came back from school it turned on for about 5 seconds with the neons blinking and fan being slow and turns off. I tried turning it on again and shuts off after like 2 seconds.

IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH POWER BUTTON OR PSU OR WAT????????????????????????????????????????????????

PLZ HELP

THIS IS A NEW BUDGET GAMING PC ABOUT 3 MONTHS OLD

More about : turns seconds

Turn off the power switch on the back of the PC and let it sit for a few minutes, and see if it comes back on. Its possible sleep may have gotten borked.

That being said, it does sound like a PSU issue...

make sure that the pushpins on the heatsink are all down and securely locked in place. This is a common issue with intel heatsinks and will cause the processor to heat up, hit its thermal thresh hold, and shut the system down.
