  1. It turns on for 2-5 seconds and then shuts down.
    I can't seem to find the cause of the problem, I've checked everything.
    No POST-screen, nothing.
    However, if I remove the CPU, the screen background-light turns on and freezes, and the fan sounds weird. If I then re-insert the CPU, nothing happens again.
    It was working earlier today.
    Specs that I know of:

    1 GB Hynix PC2 RAM
    160 GB HDD WD Scorpio WD1600BEVT
    2.0 GHZ Intel 575m

    I've tried replacing RAM too, same result.
