Hello Jonny,

Had you mentioned that the fan kept on running I could have found a solution. The fact that it's stopping after a few seconds indicates a serious physical circuit issue that only a in the flesh qualified technician can repair.

Unfortutely, the forum does not have direct interactive capabilities to see inside your laptop and show you how.

Sorry and good luck
Hello Ambucias, thanks you for trying to help me, and you have a weekend
Mine didn't work till I hit every "f" key. If it don't work at first just take the battery out for 2 mins then turn it back on and press every f key. If it don't work try it again. It worked for me.
