Good day, everyone! My friend recently asked me to scrap his Gf's 3 year old HP G60 Laptop, for any good parts, because it wasn't starting up. Now I'm a Pc guy myself, so I couldn't help but to fiddle around with it, to see if I could fix it myself. Here's what I ran into. I would turn it on, but it would instantly shut off, so firstly, I checked the Ram and it apparently had two differently branded sticks: One being a Samsung 1Gb 600mhz, and the other being Kingston 2Gb 600Mhz.. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't separate brands of Ram incompatible, even if they're clocked at the same speeds, and the fact that one is 1Gb, and the other is 2Gb? Anyway, I tested each Ram stick 1 at a time, to see if it may be one, and apparently the Samsung was no good, and was somewhat the issue to the shutting off. Once it was just the Kingston Stick installed, the Laptop would manage to boot at least to the "Boot Windows Normally?" screen and would not shut off now. But the second I choose to do so, causing the Laptop to obviously boot from the Hard Drive, the Laptop shuts off, right away. So it's the Hard Drive, huh?.. Well hang on, lol. I used a SATA/IDE to USB Adapter, to see if I could access the Hard Drive, and it connected to my Pc just fine. All the Files seem to be okay: Pictures/Music etc. Is it possible that this could be fixed, by just reinstalling with Windows 7, because maybe a Boot file was missing? No idea why that would cause a random shut down, but meh. Last I checked, if a Boot file was corrupt, it would show that message, when booting from the Hard Drive. sorry this was so long, btw. Thanks.... Oh, I forgot to mention that the Laptop has no Battery, it just runs off of the Charger, and No, there are no shorts in the Power Cable. When plugged in, the Charger Led Always stays lit, so I assume it's always sending power. Oh well, I already stated that it only happens, when trying to boot from the Hard Drive.
