Hi, My Lenovo N200 laptop has recently started powering off during the boot process.

This happens consistently when the windows xp "loading screen" is displayed with the green loading bar.

I can get passed this stage in the boot if i turn on laptop and enter BIOS for a couple of minutes.

I have also noticed that a fan is audible as "whirring up" when the problem occurs but is not audible when xp boots normally.

I really dont know what the issue is, any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.

It might be dusty and overheating or this could be a thermal shutdown. The CPU may be getting to hot. You can used a compressed air or vacuum it. Then try running it on a cooling mat.

Hope this helps.. Good luck
