On then off.

I have a three year old computer, built myself, and never had a problem. In the Three days ago I couldn't get the computer to start up. I push the power button and not even a second later it would be off. after about four tries, it started up normally. Yesterday no problem. Today it took 8-10 times before the power stayed on.

Any help would be great.
