Sounds like a poor power connection on the motherboard. Unfortunately, this isn't an easy fix - you have to completely disassemble the laptop and resolder the power connector. To check and see if this is the case, you can plug in your laptop, set it down on a table(so it doesn't move or get bumped), wait for it to start booting up, then gently wiggle the power cord where it connects to the laptop. If the computer shuts off, then it is, in fact, a loose connector.

System restore disk for HP compaq Presario 1700 help


hi, you may need to set your laptop to boot from the cd/dvd. you will need to enter the bios and check the boot priority. power the laptop as soon as you power on press either F2 or F10 to enter the bios (you have to be pretty quick with the F2 button). once in the bios look for the heading BOOT or BOOT PRIORITY F5 or F6 willchange the boot order.
hope this helps
