My daughter has a aspire laptop running windows 7 ...when she now tries to turn on the unit it goes to the screen that says start windows in normal mode ( it appears for about a half a sec ) ...BUT then you hear a click and it shuts off! Any thoughts as to what can be happening or help in solving this problem.  Thank you

It can be a whole slew of things, but not limited to these...


-Dead battery.

-Malfunctioning/damaged power adapter. The end is damage, short in wire, internal damage in the adapters (box).

-Malfunctioning/damaged power port on the laptop. Power port worn/damaged, port solder contacts torn away from the PCB.

-Dead bios battery

-Overheating. Dust, thermal paste, malfunctioning/seized system processor fan.

-Other unseen issues. Power buttons broke/jammed. USB ports damaged causing a system short, Water spills.

Thank you for the reply.


I unplugged the power cord no effect  Battery is full

power button is good ... it turns the unit on but for just a split sec

Don't know about bio battery ... will look into it

no water damage as far as we can tell or expect to have happened

Unit is not on long enough to over heat


I am open to other suggestions please.

yes it is,


i have seen computers turn off in about 2 seconds because of overheating,


overheating would be my theory,


the fan and heat sink need to be cleaned
