You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

Compaq and Hp are having issues with several models, My wife just got hers repaired free out of warranty. Go to copaqs website, look up your model and see if it is one they are offering free one time repairs on. Wife's computer was doing same thing, they replaced the motherboard. Took about 2 weeks round trip . Good luck

SOURCE: my hp laptop will not boot up
Check the power supply for power. Replace if necessary. Also check the motherboard for proper operation. If no fans come on or only come on for a few seconds then you have a bad motherboard

These machines have a terrible overheating problem! You will have to clean the fan opening and, put sylicon grease on the heat pipe and, heatsink that covers the cpu

Unseat and reseat the memory in the laptop one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Turn on the laptop after each reseat of memory.
If that doesn't work then take out the hard drive and then the dvd drive.
Turn the laptop on again and if you still can't get video on the screen then the motherboard is defective and would need to be replaced.

Seems to be a problem of not enough power.
First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.
Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:
1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.
