Well, I have a very strange problem with my laptop: sometimes it wants to boot and sometimes it doesn't want to boot.
First of all, I want to specify what I mean with doesn't want to boot:
If I press the power button of my laptop, then the LEDs of my wireless network card and battery are on, however, the three lights on top of my keyboard (indicating CAPS-LOCK, NUM-LOCK, etc...) don't light up.
I've already removed the Hard disk, but with no success, so the problem isn't related to my harddrive, I also tried replacing it by another one, but again: no success.
Now I'm thinking that it's probably the RAM memory, or do you have any other ideas?
Recently I could get it booted, (when it wants to boot, the LEDs of my keyboard are on, otherwise not, when it doesn't boot, the display doesn't work as well and I'm not receiving any beeps from my laptop): I booted my laptop from an Ubuntu Live-CD, well it booted, I could move the mouse and enter things on my keyboard, but after a while it seems like everything is frozen (moving the mouse doesn't work, the keyboard doesn't work anymore, external USB-mouse doesn't work as well, I didn't face this problem only on this live-cd, I only had it in the beginning (when the problem begun), when the harddisk was still in my laptop and when Windows was booting fine, it just hung at the login screen, after restarting it I could login, but it just restarted, and from then it just refuses to boot.
The model of my laptop is: Compaq nc8000
Amount of RAM in it: 1GB (2x 512MB)
If you've any more questions, then feel free to ask :)
