Hey everyone,


I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this but just to be sure..


A colleague at work has a laptop (his own) which is around 5-7 (not sure) years old. He wants to sell it for spares and repairs but just wants to make sure when he posts it on eBay that he lists it correctly with the exact (or close enough) problem(s).


He has removed the HDD as he wants to keep it, when you try booting the laptop up it will light up the screen and the buttons, however it will then cut out and repeat.


I have removed the battery and powered it via the cable but this did not work so ruling out the battery.


Any advice would be great








I know that the HDD removed isn't the problem as the PC should prompt me saying that there is no HDD.

It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Words and ideas can change the world.
