I was watching a video and my laptop just shut down. I turned it back on, but all I heard was the fan go on and stop. The power green light is steady and so is the one for the dvd. I tried to open the dvd tray, but it wouldnt open. I've tried turning it off/on and still nothing. Can I still fix this or should I just get a new one? Thanks

take out the battery, then take out the memory. Put one of the two memory modules back in, and turn it on. If everything looks ok, shut down and put the other one back and try again...if everything is ok...then ok. If it doesn't work after the first one, let me know...
When 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.
if your pc shuts down in 10 second with black sreen it means that your laptop memory was not detected.
reinsert your laptop memory (RAM) .. be sure to clean it especially at the contact points.
A few things may cause this (1) your Network (2) your Network Strength (3) your Anti-Virus. Cheek all this to make sure there are ok and if there are and the problem persist, Troubleshoot, and if it continuous give it to a technician near you. Cheers
I think it might be the motherboard, if its not regulating the voltage properly then to much will go thru the motherboard and the fan won't be able to cool things down properly. Eventually then the motherboard will fail and then no video like your having now.
Try these steps anyway just to be sure:
only hook up the AC Adapter keep the battery disconnected. See if it turns on, if you still get a blinking green light then go ahead and turn the laptop off.
At this point, unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.
If that doesn't do it then disconnect the hard drive and the dvd drive from the laptop.
Then try turning on the laptop, if you still can't get video then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
