Laptop Turns off a Few Seconds After Turning it on?

Postby mysticfred » Tue Feb 09, 2016 5:34 pm

My laptop turned itself off while I was using it, now whenever I switch it on it begins to boot up but then turns off after only a few seconds, any ideas on what could be the problem?

My guess is flat battery and a US power supply. My Laptop the battery went years ago in real terms it lasts just a few seconds before it dies. Now on forth power supply brick. When the power supplies go they tend to blow the fuse in the plug, pointless renewing it just blows the replacement. However you can test the fuse by using lead for something else, if it does not work then likely power supply brick has failed.
