Default need help

I have a Compaq presario M2000 laptop and it shut off by itself. Then to get it to boot again i have to take the battery and power cord out. Then replace them and it will start up but it will eventually shut off by itself again. The amount of time it stays on each time seems random(sometimes 5 minuets and sometimes a couple of hours). Does anybody have any idea what could be wrong with it? thanks in advance.

I don't have an extra battery. When it turns on it says 100% battery though. Thanks for the response.

Does this happen on battery power and when plugged in? If not, try both again and get back to us.
