The problem has something to do with the laptop trying to go into hyburnation and it not working. It's got Windows XP and normaly when I shut it down for the night I just close the lid to make it sleep. Well today I opened it up and it died trying to start up and began to restart itself. I tried booting in safe mode and it shut itself off again during the boot. I tried starting it in normal mode and it shut itself off again at the same time during the boot. I think it's stuck loading the settings and it goes back into hyburnation during the boot and it cuts itself off... or something like that. I don't know shit about computers, so is there anyone out there that knows of a way I can handle this? Thanks a billion if you help.
