Specs: xp professional, 2gigabytes
about a week ago it started to turn off at random. kind of like it ran out of battery life. but its plugged in. today it wont start but for a few seconds the keyboard lights come on and the fans then its off like you unplugged it or held the power button. the light for it being plugged in remains on unless really unplugged . any ideas its an older laptop used heavy for gaming ive had it for about 2.5 years with no problems till now.

So now I'm more confused I finished cleaning out everything tried restarting it with no ram with each stick in diff places etc.. no change, did the same thing with hard drives, took out the dvd drive, no change. Put it all back together tried to start it again no change. Turned on my ps3 played a little bit hit the power button on my Laptop as I was going to sleep and it turns on and starts up like nothing happened... it's running fine nothing seems slow or out of place and it runs all my games at the same settings. It doesn't mean I fixed it or that it's not going to turn off again but maybe she just needed a rest? I don't know I'm going to see how it goes for now but any ideas on the matter would be helpful.
