laptop turns on and off in 4 seconds, does this for about 30 minutes before booting up. this is the third day in a row that it has been doing this. also gets stuck on shut down/restarts. is it a software issue or hardware?

It sounds hardware related however we would want to be sure.

Try downloading Ubuntu onto a USB drive and booting off it in the Demo mode. If the issue persists it's an issue with the Hardware.

Please post back the results.

Not quite the simple. You need to mount it onto the USB.

I use a tool called Rufus. A quick google should find it.
