I have a problem that I don't know what can be the cause.
My somewhat old timey laptop Toshiba Satellite A300 PSAGCE that doenst turn on sometimes.. and other times it just turns on for a brief moment and immediately or even gets to the windows logo and turns off.
Sometimes when it turns off.. it stays off and when I click on the button to turn on.. I get no response or again briefly turns on and immediately crashes.
Other times.. it stays on a loop constantly turning on and turning off on its own. Seems witchcraft to me honestly xD..
Lately I realized that when it turns on it displays a greenish image that stays green until it crashes whether at the windows logo point.. or earlier if it crashes before it.
I haven't used this laptop since this problem started because I had other alternatives so I kinda delayed the resolution of this problem. But I remember that when this started happening.. was around the time I noticed that it was getting overheated quite often.
Does anyone know what could it be? Some burned out hardware? What should I look for? A new laptop perhaps xD..
I really wanted to try to fix this but I really don't know where to start.
Any help on this would be much appreciated!
