Question about Computers & Internet
Have you tried a different PSU (Power Supply Unit). PC not Laptop, right? Also, I normally try PCs with minimum components connected, i.e. no drives of any kind, one RAM at a time, sometimes even without Graphics card and or RAM, just depends on what lights, fan(s) and or sounds I see and or hear....BUT yeah motherboard sounds like the real culprit only because I've had one AMD 939 Socket Mobo do the same to me, tried and tried to convince myself it couldn't be BUT in the end it was. Good luck.

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Is the laptop actually detecting an output when the KVM is plugged in? Try forcing output with Windows + P (Vista/7) or a function key (not sure what it is for the 8470p).

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.
