Solved Dropped laptop stays on for 3 seconds now, then gone. Help

Specs: windows 7, 4gb
I bought a Lenovo G560 laptop that had been dropped before. Now when I power it up it stays on for about 3 seconds and shuts back off. I have tried a different hard drive, switched out the memory sticks, removed the heatsink and reseated the cpu, applied more thermal paste, and reseated the heatsink all to no avail. Got any ideas?

✔ Best Answer
Probably some other motherboard components have been damaged or dislodged from the shock of having been dropped. You will need to have it looked at by a laptop repair shop who can test it. Maybe the component can be replaced, but in many cases a whole new motherboard is required (if the right type is still available).
