Sounds like a loose connection/faulty wire. you might want to open it up and check to see that the hard drive and cd drive are connected properly. likewise with the ram in it's slot. be careful!!! make sure that you are grounded(don't wear wool sweaters or other wool things, turn on a humidifier in the room for an hour or so. put the laptop on a wooden table and make sure it is unplugged). do not drop anything off the table while you are doing it. make sure you aren't distracted. and only touch the screws with the screwdriver, not any of the boards or drives.

IF YOU DON"T FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING THIS YOURSELF, HAVE SOMEONE ELSE DO IT!!

you do not want to wreck it. have a tech professional do it. it may cost you a bit more than you would liek to pay though.

shop around and find out the best price in your area.

Try taking the memory out and then put it back in making sure it seated correctly then start using AC power lead it's probably caused by letting the battery get too low before recharging.Use a start up disc to get it going if you have to. Good luck
