When you press the power button, the power light goes on steady, the HDD indicator blinks once, then the system shuts off. Never get anything on the screen.
Once in a great while, the system will actually boot into Windows and works fine.
The battery is charged, the charger is good.
I have tried removing RAM, HDD and can't get into BIOS even, unless it is one of those off chances the system stays on.
Could it be something is shorting out? I've tried taking out the battery and unplugging it and holding the power button to discharge, but no luck.
