It sounds like your hard drive has gone bad. As this is a laptop you can try to reseat the hard drive, if that does not help then it might be a case of hard drive crash.

Hello,
Even though a lot of things might have gone wrong and caused this,
But I will try and tell you some troubleshooting steps that you can try.
First of all, disconnect your battery from back of the laptop, and try to power your laptop without the battery there, if it powers up, then just get a new
battery.
Second, get a screw-driver, remove all the RAM(memory sticks) at the back of it, clean their interface with an eraser, and try to power it on first without
them, then replace them back and power it on.
Alternatively,
Remove all your RAM(Memory Sticks), and clean the tip of the connector with an eraser, and re-insert it one after the other.
That is, if you have two of them, after you insert the first one, put on your system and see if it works, then do the same thing with the other one.
If the two of them works, them insert the them all. but if it is just one that worked, just remove the other one that is not working and replace it.
Also from what you have just said, I suspect that your hard drive is likely to be corrupt, or having a bad sector on it.
To be sure of this, disconnect your hard drive from the laptop, and power it up without connecting the hard drive, if it boots up to the point where it says:
"Operating System Not Found" or "No Bootable Device Found", then that shows that your hard drive needs replacement
Kindly Let me know how it goes.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck!

Someone gave me a metrobook vl laptop. It looks kinda old timing and I wanted to get it upgrade. How do I do this without a diskdrive?


Hello

Ok, firstly, you need to have a hard drive in order to use your computer. An upgrade will usually be a ram module upgrade, but let me know what the specs of the computer is so that i can get a better insight on helping you.

Hello,

Even though a lot of things might have gone wrong and caused this, especially if where you place the laptop is not well ventilated, and the CPU becomes very
hot.

It then shuts down automatically...and you will have to wait for a few moments, get a cool environment and power it on.

But I will also try and tell you some troubleshooting steps that you can try.

First of all, disconnect your battery from back of the laptop, and try to power your laptop without the battery there, if it powers up, then just get a new

battery.

Second, get a screw-driver, remove all the RAM(memory sticks) at the back of it, clean their interface with an eraser, and try to power it on first without

them, then replace them back and power it on.

Alternatively,

Remove all your RAM(Memory Sticks), and clean the tip of the connector with an eraser, and re-insert it one after the other.

That is, if you have two of them, after you insert the first one, put on your system and see if it works, then do the same thing with the other one.

If the two of them works, them insert the them all. but if it is just one that worked, just remove the other one that is not working and replace it.

Since the hardware route is expensive, have you tried to upgrade the software/drivers for the drive?

It looks like there's an incompatibility between the software, OS and hardware.

Computer stuck?


I would try removing the hard drive with the laptop turned off without the power adapter connected. Then reinstall the hard drive and reconnect the power adapter. Check in the BIOS to see if the hard drive is reconogized. If all this fails I recommend replacing the hard drive and reloading the operating system
