I start the computer, hear one beep (which is good), then runs for about 30 seconds and shut-down. Retarted the computer around 10 times or more still does the same thing, over, and over, and over again....
I check the nvidia video card on another computer (ok), hard drive (ok), sound card(ok).
Could it be the power supply, or the CPU, or the motherboard? Could anyone help me, going on 3 days, and I can't figure out!!!!

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.
Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.
Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.
Remove Power Cord then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then put the cord back in and try to start it.
When you press the Power Button are you hearing the fans run, the disk drive running, the cd drive click and the light on it comes on for a second or two?
Anything shows up on the LCD Screen?
If you press the power button and absolutely nothing is happening then you most likely have a bad power supply.
If you press the power button and you start hearing beep sounds or blinking lights in a continuous pattern (ex. 1 long followed by 2 short) then you have a motherboard issue. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the technician what is going on with the computer.
What OS? See this general troubleshooting article, or see here for xp., and possibly here for vista. You might also try Sager support here.
To begin with, remove the battery and power cable, hold the power button down for a few seconds, then reinsert and reconnect and try to power it up...Make sure there are no discs loaded in the drives...check the ram to be sure it hasn't unseated....etc.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
Do you hear the fuel pump cut off? Once your pump reaches pressure it should cut off. Also you can try and remove your fuel cap and see if the car will run just know it could cause your check engine light to come on so do not run it very long. If it continues to run with fuel cap off I would say it is your fuel pump. Good luck with that and the best thing to do is get a fuel pressure gadge and see what kind of fuel pressure you are running. I know there are some parts houses that will loan or rent you tools. Good luck.
Could use more info. but, is it just going in to sleep mode ?..check your power settings under Display properties, Screen saver, Power.
Do you hear any Beep codes at startup ?. .does it shut off after maybe logging on to windows ?. . Check to see if the Fan runs, it may be over-heating and shuts down to prevent thermal damage to the CPU. if your fan is not running, DO not start it up till u replace the fan.
hold the power button for 10 seconds it turn off ur cpu and then start the cpu and hold F5 key u get windows boot menu select safemode try to login after login check in the controlpannel poweroptions chek in advance option see the menu down wheather it is in standby then change it to shutdown and apply the setting. and check it out it may work r else please try to repair the os.
