This is the stock laptop and one fine day it just shutdown on me while i was watching a movie.
When I give it power supply it turn on for 2 secs I hear the fan rotate and it shuts down.
and then the 2 lights for power supply and battery blink that is it
No display nothing. I am not sure if it is the motherboard or power supply of CPU (which is rare).
The warranty has expired so I had disassembled it to dig deep and I could see the fan rotate and stop. so please advise I need to fix this.
As people are offering like $50 and $80 for this.
I rather keep it then sell at the price.

edit: its the yellow power supply light and the Orange battery light tat blinks tats it.... no other light turns on while these blink or otherwise

EDIT 2: Really ? 24 views and no replies ? Like no one has had this problem ?

If you already disassembled it, you might want to try and reset the BIOS by removing the little cell battery from the motherboard for a couple hours. Also, try to do a thorough clean-up on the inside, to eliminate any possibility of overheating. If these steps still unsuccessful, if could be the motherboard or the graphics adapter that failed.
