My laptop shuts down as soon as Windows boot!
Posted on 2008-11-08
Last night I was just working on my laptop and suddenly it shut down. I tried switching it back on but as soon as Windows start (after the Windows logo) it just shuts down. At times, it goes upto the desktop screen and then shuts down. Also, it does show an error message at times before the desktop screen saying something like "there is a problem which is preventing your system to startup" something like that because I cant read the whole thing as it just shuts down immediately.
I also tried safe mode, last known good configuration, disable automatic restart on system failure.. I have tried everything but it doesnt let me do anything. It just shuts down automatically no matter what I do. I also tried to run Windows XP recovery disc but before it even initializes properly the laptop shuts down.
Can anyone give me any suggestions on how to go about the issue?
PS. The fan is working properly as I can hear it. Also I tried to unplug ram, hard disk and dvdrom drive and plugged them back again to see if that works but it doesnt.
