Sony FRV28 Laptop doesn't start

Hi, I have Sony VAIO FRV 28 laptop since last 2 and half years. In recent days i am experiencing very strange problem. My Laptop doesn't start at all. As soon as I press power ON button (on Laptop) all LED indicators glow and in a 1-2 sec it shuts off. I checked my AC power adaptor with same laptop from my friend and it seems to be a fine. I am not sure about the abrupt nature of my laptop. Is it something related to overheating of CPU? Just wild guess. Please advice!!

Get to the main board of ur system there is a jumper near the battery .
change its position while power is off and get it back to its previous position. this way u will reset cmos to default.
if the computer starts hit delete to enter setup and load system changes then exit.

My laptop Sony Vaio CS 320J is shutting down with out any notice(not proper shut down but poweroff while running) and not booting again for @ least 2 mins. recently this issue started and this is...

Remove the bottom pan to expose the cooling fan, clean all dirt out of the heat sink and fins,and clean fan, next remove the heat sink to expose the processor ic, remove the old thermal grease with rubbing alcohol, and apply fresh thermal conductive compound to the heat sink and processor, "not to much! just enough to cover the critical areas and assemble. In most cases this will solve the shutdown problem.
