    My personal laptop has shut down several times after the power button was pressed. In some cases it powers and and boots up to the windows screen or sometimes halfway to the windows screen and shuts down.

    I checked with a similar model laptop and confirmed ram, hd, battery, power pack are all working good.

    I stripped laptop and cleaned cooling fan, inside cover and heat sink. I even removed the dvd drive and cpu.

    After putting back every thing and retested my the fault still persists.

    I am suspecting I may have a faulty mb may be caused by a short somewhere.

    I really need assistance here to work around this fault to get the machine working properly.

    does it always progress beyond post screen
    boot it from puppy cd and see if that will run in ram
    Make this
    Make a Puppy Linux disc

    1. Save these files to your Desktop/Burn Your Live CD:

      • Download Latest Puppy Linux ISO
      • ON Windows 7 of course you can burn that ISO using the inbuilt windows 7 iso burner or you can use as above the free burnCDCC
        • Open BurnCDCC with Windows Explorer
        • Extract All files to a location you can remember
        • Double Click [​IMG] BurnCDCC
        • Click Browse and navigate to the Puppy Linux ISO file you just downloaded
        • Open/Double Click that file
          IMPORTANT: Adjust the speed bar to CD: 4x DVD: 1x
        • Click Start
        • Your CD Burner Tray will open automatically
        • Insert a blank CD and close the tray
        • Click OK
        Puppy Linux Live CD will now be created
    2. Set your boot priority in the BIOS to CD-ROM first, Hard Drive Second
    or use one time boot options

    3. Puppy will run in ram and is a good test of hardware
