Yesterday night I turn off the laptop, today at around noon I go to turn it on and it seems as it is going to start, all the lights fire up the hdd light flashes just once, checks the cd drive, then nothing. screen stays blank the whole time. power light stays on cpu fan is running, but nothing. I tried using an install disk and it seems to try and look at the disk but shortly after I turn it on it flashes off and starts the whole process over again, and will do this over and over as long as you let it. F1 will not let you into the bios, F10 has no effect as well. I have never had a problem with this machine at all until now just a blank screen and all lights function as normal, except it only looks at the hdd only for a split second right when I power up. I tried removing the memory and putting in a different stick to no avail. I unpluged what seems to be the MB battery under the same cover as the mem and re hooking it to no change either. I get no beeps when trying to boot with no memory or hdd either. I am stumped, Bad Mo Board? Bad Processor? like I say it worked fine, shut it off. go to it the next day sitting on the same table un moved and nothing. acts like it\s going to but nothing then it flashes off for a split sec and does it all over and over again please help.
