I had an interesting problem, and there was a previous unanswered, but CLOSED post that discussed the same issue here:

http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/1060893-solved-laptop-cutting-out.html

I wanted to add to this. It seems that through trial and error that the motherboard/power supply is shorting out on a screw on the base of the unit. In particular, the two screws that are NOT on the edges, but towards the center of the laptop. I left those out and the laptop runs fine. I put them in, and I have no power at all. No lights, no fan, nothing on either DC or AC.

Just wanted to add this info in case anyone else comes along with a similar issue.
