Hi - I'm having trouble with my PC. When I press the power button, it will turn on; however, nothing displays on screeen and the computer restarts itself without displaying bios (or anything else). I've tried pressing buttons on the keyboard in the hope of getting into bios; however, this does not work. I am not sure what the problem is or how to fix it. Thanks in advance for any help.
p.s. it says im online but its just my laptop being kept on

its probably a bad power supply, if your motherboard is good, it shuts down computer to prevent damage (happened to me and im thenkfull for it),
