If it beeps at you AND stays on, it's either memory or graphics.
If it doesn't beep at you AND stays on, it's either motherboard or processor.
If it doesn't beep at you AND doesn't stay on, it's usually processor or PSU.
If it beeps at you AND then switches off, it's usually processor.
First thing to do is try another power supply. IF you can find one that works with that laptop as those usually have their own non standard units.

Do you hear a beep during the boot sequence? Have you tried new RAM?

As long as you're here, please download Speed Fan, install it, and run it to monitor voltages and temperatures. Watch the Temp 1 temps at startup and after the machine has run a while then post them here for me.
