If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow myinstructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-
Remove the all the screws from the bottom side of the case. Lift the top of the case up just a few inches. Directly under the mouse pad, there is a little ribbon about a 1/4 inch wide. Pull it from the mother board. It may be easier to remove the keyboard to access this ribbon.
When you have everything connected and are ready to access the old hard drive, right click in the drive and see if you get the run as administrator option, if you do, click on it and log in as the administrator of your machine, if you don't get that option, go to the control panel and security and disable the User Account Control, reboot and you should be able to access it. just be sure to turn it back on later.
If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts.
Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
