Can you hear the fans come on? Check around the vents for dust/dirt.
How do you know the battery is good?
Try safe mode.

Yes, I can hear the fans come on but then of course when the screen goes black the fans go off. --I know it isn't the battery because I ordered a new battery and the laptop still does the same thing. Please tell me what to do to make my laptop work (other than buy a new one)
thanks

Is the charger working? Some have a light, some just get warm. new battery doesn't mean a good battery, but it probably is.
This sounds like a charging/power supply issue.
What's the exact make and model?
