  1. Recently my laptop has problems starting i will explain in detail what happens:

    I press the power button as normal and as normal the power button lights up only for about 2 seconds, however rarely it lights up and stays on for about 20 seconds and then goes off. The screen never even comes on.

    Please help....

    could be several things,,,faulty Power supply, faulty mainboard, failing memory, overheating, it would need taking into a repair shop to determine the exact cause, unlike a PC which can be troubleshooted down to a set thing, laptops cant and require an expert eye.
