laptop turns on but does not boot
Posted on 2014-08-14
Hi got a samsung 3530EC.
windows 8 on it.
Got a problem. I turn on the laptop, it goes to the samsung screen but does not load windows. Instead it turns off, then turns on again to the samsung screen, turns off and then turns on again. It keeps doing this until I eventually keep my finger pressed down on the power button and it turns off properly.
I have tried pressing F2 when booting to try and get into bios but this does not work, it does not go into bios, it just turns off again.
I've removed battery and tried with just power cable and that does not work either. What could it be and what should I try to do?
If you can advise
