Hello everyone.

I've been having a problem with my laptop for about a year now. It just will not boot at all. When I press the power button some of the panel lights flick once. Upon further inspection inside the laptop I notice the fan also gives a little flicker when I press the power button too. To demonstrate exactly what I mean, I have posted a short video on YouTube:

Furthermore, it will sometimes boot, about once every two weeks (sometimes more, sometimes less). There doesn't seem to be any logic in when it decides to boot and not boot. Also, if I do manage to get it running then it will sometimes just suddenly switch off without any shut down process or anything. Literally completely dead in a split second, and typically once it's done that, it won't switch on again.

It is a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi 2528
17" BrilliantView technology WXGA+ display (1440 x 900)
Intel Core 2 Duo processor
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS (DirectX 10 technology) with HDMI
Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 AGN

+/- 3/4 years old
Windows Vista

Have tried replacing the power chord, have tried replacing the little circular battery on one of the circuit boards, have cleaned the fan out, have checked the memory is properly in place, have taken out the hard drive and checked it's functioning properly.
