    boot problem

    i have this same computer and have had the same problem. before you do anything crazy like take you computer apart.

    close the lid and blow really hard into the vent on the back and look @all the dust fly out. then blow out the fans on the bottom. it should fix it

    Hi Stoney,

    I figured out my problem. It is actually the ac adaptor that is the culprit.

    After I replace it, it has been working fine until now.
