  1. hi all
    i took the laptop apart looking for this eeprom chip which i havent found. i waited 24h and reassembled it. then pressed the on button. after, the very first screen came up, loaded a bit and for less then a sec "time and date is not set up" info popped out. then suddenly the laptop powered it self off. when i was pressing the on button nothing happened. the status lights are coming on when i press the on button and that is it.

    i did not change the silicone under the heat sink, do u think the processor has something to do with all this?

    thanks for helping guys

    here's what is going on:
