So the fans fire up for a few seconds and it auto dies?

Make and Model would help definitely, but you can try a few other things aswell.

Pull out the battery and attempt to boot. If that does not work, and if the machine is a desktop pull open the side and put a fan on it to make sure this is not a heat issue.

Every time ive experienced this issue its about 80% overheating right off the bat and the machine will not start, or the fan has died and if it is connected to the motherboard the censor will show it as such, and to keep from overheating the machine will not allow itself to turn on.

Another attempt you could pull the sticks of RAM and test them one at a time.

Im not sure how advanced you are with machines but some of this is pretty basic. If all of this has failed there are some cheaper tools you can purchase to test the Power supply. Or you could attempt to re-seat the CPU, or check to make sure there are no burst caps on the motherboard and that nothing metal is touching it else it will be shorting out.

Let me know.

There is a possibility that the screen has died.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
