hi,
You can check your warranty status.This will tell you how long you have left on the warranty, and what kind of warranty you have.

This problem of your laptop shutting off itself usually means that you have a faulty power supply.You have to replace it or repair it from a repair center.

Re: Laptop will not turn back on

hi,
It Seems like overheating. You should clean fans inside the laptop. If you dont get any lights on, it might also be a power supply problem or connection inside laptop.

i've changed the plud end of the "inverter" and it made no difference , any idea how i can test the other bit?

hi,
I'm thinking maybe it's a RAM problem because it's turning itself off during the RAM tests, but it had no problem running the HDD test which took about 45 minutes.
