Computer Powers On... and Then Off When I turn my computer on I hear the fans inside the computer turn on, see the lights on the front of my computer turn on and flash, THEN IT DOES IT AGAIN, and then it will stop. I don’t see anything on the monitor and I hear beeps coming from the computer before it shuts off. The light to the left of the numbers lock does 2 medium flashes then 1 short as does the D.V.D. drive and I think the hard drive is trying to start. This happens twice then laptop shuts down. After 20 to 30 attempts the laptop starts.

Make and Model?

Have you tried with the battery removed and on mains only?

Good Afternoon and thank you for the posts. I have tried it in safe mode and will try it without the battery in. When the laptop is running I can turn it off and then it will switch back on with no problem. I always turn it off at night and then in the morning the problem reoccurs. Mike

Would be tempted to run a disk check on the hard drive, once its started.

or You could put the drive into a caddy and attch to another machine to run the disk check.
