Question about Computers & Internet
The X200 Philips laptop shuts down (crashes) regularly. When trying to start it up it tries, displays the PHILIPS word, then an audible click is heard and it switches off. If I move the screen, even a fraction it then tries to start again, sometimes successfully other times it switches off again. Even tapping the computer can start it trying to start again. Eventually, by moving the screen backwards & forwards, the computer will start (hence this email) and I can commence using it. This has been looked at by an "engineer" who tried a complete re-boot to no avail. He thinks its a hardware issue. Have you any previous experience of a similar problem? I have not dropped it, or knocked it, it just started happening about 6 to 8 weeks ago. I was just wondering if you had any ideas what might be the cause/solution? Has any other owner of an X200 reported such an issue? Thanks. Phil N.

I had something close to that and I solve the problem by
replacing the motherboard but before you think of it, you can try different
Maybe some parts are shorted the microprocessor
So to start unplug the dvd player, the keyboard, mousepad, the screen.
If you ear an alarm, it’s mean the motherboard work so far.
Plug the screen back and try to restart and so on.
If it stop working you know what part to replace.
But if you stuck only with the screen on, it might still be the motherboard or microprocessor.
To open it, download the service manual :
