Check if laptop still has power if yes run PSA. make sure laptop is off. press n hold Fn key then press power button. check if it has errors. if laptop no more power remove batt and use ac adapter alone, if fails try a diff power adapter, if fails replace mobo.

There isn't only one answer to your question, because there are many problems that can cause it.
So I will list some of the issues I know that cause it and hope it will help you.
1 - Heat problem ( the fan system isn't working fine - need to be replace)
2 - Some connection problem (like memories, HD's - try to reconnect them)
3 - OS problem (try to reinstall the Windows, Linux, etc)

I hope it can help you and if you have more details about the problem I guess I can help you more.

Restore to last known Good Configuration:

To use the Last Known Good Configuration feature, first restart the computer by pressing [Ctrl][Alt][Delete]. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start or hear the single beep, press [F8] to display the Windows Advanced Options menu. Select the Last Known Good Configuration item from the menu and press [Enter].

  1. Print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut down your computer in step 2.
  2. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then, in the drop-down list, click Shut down.
  3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
  4. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  5. Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
  6. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.

  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function
