hi i wonder if anyone can help , i was fixing a friends old sat pro because the hard drive was goosed.
i put a partition on the hard rive as he cant afford a new one as yet, this worked fine... i then started installing xp on it and half way through it just shut down
now it will only turn on for a few seconds then turns off . i get the toshiba screen but only for a few seconds.
Ive removed the bios battery to reset it and still nothing, ive removed the HDD and the memory sticks and still nothing.
it wont stay on long enough to see the bios settings or to boot from cd etc , and starting it with or without mains power/battery makes no difference
IT WILL ONLY SWITCH ON FOR A FEW SECONDS WHEN I HAVE REMOVED THEN REINSERTED THE BATTERY , if i dont reinsert the battery it wont even siwtch on.
any advice would be really appreciated as i have to explain to him how i broke it otherwise!!
the laptop was running fine up until i tried to install xpp
