Dear Sir,

Please consider checking whether the problem is not coming from the power supplying unit, the motherboard or its RAM stick and indicate for further help.

Thanks in advance.

Hi. I hope you see this. Same thing happened to me- try removing battery, and removing the hard drive on the right side of the laptop, the small black thing right by the arrow keys-pull it out and reinsert it. Play around with those and I hope it will work for you.
