Question about Computers & Internet
Hi there. It sounds more like a power board problem.
There are a couple of ways to check the hard drive, though. One is to take the hard drive out, and see if this still happens. A computer will still turn on without the hard drive connected, as the BIOS runs from a chip and the RAM. As you say that they can still run the laptop with it not plugged in, there is a program that they can download that will test the drive.
Here is the link:
Get them to download and install the program, and see what the results are.
Hope that helps.
