laptop probs

  Blokka 20:03 13 Jun 2005

I have just been given a laptop to try to fix however my knowledge on such things is not that good.
The problem is that when you switch the laptop on the green light stays on for about 3-4 secs then goes straight out again.
There is power getting to the system and when plugged in it charges up the battery ok, any ideas as to what it could be, and whether it is worth trying to repair.
The actual spec is a dell 500mhz machine 128mb ram
