First of all turn off your caps lock. All caps is considered shouting.

It sounds like your laptop may be overheating. See if you can boot into the setup screens to check.

[Q1] What were you doing on the internet at the time,
downloading or surfing? etc
[Q2] Make And Model Of Laptop Would Be Nice.
[Q3] Have You Tried Booting From A Recovery CD, Which Never
Fails As The Data Is Stored On The Disk..Best Bet Is To Try
One And Open A Recovery Console Or Repair Option.
[Q4] Are you the only person to access the pc and if not what do
they use occasionally?

if you want to reformat and start again (fyi you will losoe all files on your hard drive) do the following. as the laptop turns on insert the XP disc into the cd drive. boot from cd, and it will reinstall.

Was just surfing the net, is asked to install active x codec, shortly after was when the laptop crashed. laptop is ibm thinkpad r51. Laptop turns on and indicator light says its on but the screen goes off. Have tried attatching an external monitor but that says no signal. Think laptop may have a bug, but as I stay screen doesn't stay on long.
