    this is my other laptop, so, the problem is . when i try to install windos xp sp2 pro. evrything going well but when is in the phase of copy files needs for installation(after token quick format ntfs), it turn off by himself, i change the hard drive (just in case if it was HD problem) and do the same thing, when i use a boot cd utitlity i cannot see the unit C:(Hardrive) but when i run FDISK i can see MSDOS Command only represent 2 letters; A:(The ramdrive) & R:(The CD-ROM). while in ms-dos command i was checking, checking and then it turn off again. Other way the memory,CPU&MainBoard is in good condition.

    then what could be the problem? may be the mainboard is dirty, that reason the mainboard get so warm?

    you turn dude...
