  1. I have a pretty basic HP laptop, probably about two years old. Surfing the net the other day and the screen turns white. Not it wont turn back on and run. It turns on for just one second then flips off. I already tried the hardware reset, do you guys have any other suggestions?

    Pull the battery out with the AC adapter disconnected, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Replace the battery and see if the laptop will boot. If not, remove the hard drive and re-install the memory. Does the laptop try to boot? If all this fails, the motherboard might be bad
