I had to fix a laptop that was doing the same thing & it was because someone decided to upgrade the memory & installed mis-matched memory.

Did you try F8 to go to last known good config or safe mode?

It's either the hard drive, bad memory or the mother board.
Open the back, see what HD is there & download the diagnostic tools for it. Burn them to a CD & boot the machine with it.

I will try this one "see what HD is there & download the diagnostic tools for it. Burn them to a CD & boot the machine with it." did you mean that i jsut insert the cd ang restart it? cause i cannot set the first boot system to CD-ROM as i said i cannot enter on its boot setup..

Thanks a lot bro for giving time on this..

If the CD is not set to the first boot device, it may not work.

it did not work..but this i just noticed that the temperature air out from the cpu fan seems to increase rapidly (im not sure if its normal but i have a doubt that it is not) even though the fan is working...

things i did
Start it without HDD
Start it without the RAM
Start it without the battery
still no changes
i wasnt able to remove the cd-rom because i dont know how..
