hi guys and gals
my daughter has a laptop running (XP.....I know), she tried to turn it on the other day, the power light comes on, the hd starts spinning and within 6-10 seconds it shuts off.
I have removed the power lead and held down the power button for 30 seconds, replaced the power lead and tried again but it still dows the same - shuts down.
the screen is still black at this time so I don't know whats wrong, she had no trouble before this happened, just turned it off tried the next day to turn on but nothing.
many thanks in advance
