How old is PC?

If starts then shuts down almost immediately its heat or moreprobably in your case the Power supply unit dying.

if it was heat related it wouldn't start on third attempt.

An ageing PSU sounds likely. But before you start spending money, an internal clean and a reseating of all cards and cables might clear the problem.

And it costs no more than a can of air
