Every once in awhile, when i turn on my laptop it won't start up. I press the power button and the lights come on but it doesn't boot, start up, whatever you chose to call it. then when it does that it will turn off by itself then turn back on but still won't start up. the screen is black (off). no lights on the screen. i was wondering if maybe its my hard drive going.

reset the bios by switching of the pc, remove the power cable, find the bios jumper, (usually nect to the battery) move the jumper to the opposite pin for about 10 seconds then replace, then switch on.bios needs to determine the type of memory.

Hi there,

Remove the battery and plug adapter to it and press start,after successful login make a shut down then connect battery and start.

Note: If you are planning to reset the bios,for this you will have to remove the cover and if still under warranty it will be void and will no longer be covered by reseller or manufacturer,get it done by a professional.
