Remove system battery and power cord.

Remove the keyboard screws, flip KB toward front. Then you will see a small battery, remove the battery for about 30 seconds then replace.

After battery and KB replaced power on unit.

Sounds like a hard drive issue. Take the hard drive out and put it back in again and try it. Hope that helps.

Booting


Has the fan been replaced? If not then the laptop will power itself off to protect from overheating. The fan is like a switch in the loop. Like old Xmas lights. One not working then none will work.
