So a friend gave me his laptop to fix with the aforementioned problem.when he first showed it to.me the laptop actually managed to boot into windows before shuting down.now it shuts down every time after almost exactly 8 seconds.it does so even in bios.I took it apart and reassembled a bunch of ttimes,re applied thermal paste,checked the 2 ram separatel, tried to boot with hdd and cd drive unplugged but no dice.Also every time it shuts down you hear this weird click sound as if you unplug it.Almost certain its a mobo issue,I just would like to hear your opinion before I go ahaed and "cook" it.

Its not the paste nor the heatsink. Cant gget into bios long enough to check anything.The cpu does heat up ridiculously for just the 8 seconds its on.It has got to be the mobo or cpu,cant think of anything else.I get no beep codes without any ram inserted.
