Laptop not booting up

I bought a HP ZT1260 laptop, guy told me all it needed was a battery hence the laptop not booting up, I bought another new battery, when pressing the power button it starts and you can hear the hard drive spin but shuts down after about 25-30 seconds, no screen display. looks like I got burned!

Ok it's probably not the battery. Try taking the battery out and run it just by the cord, if it works, than return the battery and get a genuine HP one. If it is a genuine one,save it.If fails i'ts the power board or even worse, the motherboard. Now it could be a CPU overheat, look up on google "taking apart HP zT1260". and clean fan and mainboard. if that fails, it's the video card, again look and take apart and see if the graphics card is removable, if it is replace it, if not. You got ripped off and he was bluffing :( Trust me I'm a computer IT worker. Try returning it, if that fails, tell people that he shouldn't be a repuatable seller. Good Luck

HP Netbook mini 110, Bought new battery but it will not reboot properly after installed

sounds like it is powered up if it is continually restarting. Does it work with the AC power adapter plugged in? At any rate the constant restart is indicative of a failing power supply (not meaning the battery but the power converter that is inside notebook). After the BIOS the PC goes to the hard drive for the boot cycle at which point there is an increase in power demand which can cause a weak power supply (not the battery) to shutdown and restart, hence the restarting cycle. How do you tell him to fix the problem?? well that depends but I don't believe that there is a conversational repair at this point.
