    Laptop shuts down before loading windows.


    Hi, yesterday my laptop turned off suddenly and since then, everytime I turn it on it turns off before windows loading.I isn't hard drive issue cause I checked it and it works fine on other pc.I even tried to boot from cd but again it turns off.I really don't know what to do, any ideas would be really helpful.

    Some other hardware problem is causing it. Can you boot up with the Windows DVD or a Ubuntu Live DVD in the dvd drive and use the computer with no problems?

    Did you change the boot order in the BIOS before trying to boot with the DVD?

    Try with battery only, unplugged. Then remove battery and plug in, try without battery.

    Sorry, all I have left is repair shop or new laptop. You can pull the hard drive and back it up using a drive caddy on another computer.
