I have an old laptop here that someone gave me for free. The old man stripped the screws, so I can only get to certain parts without breaking the case. I can get it to power up, but it brings me to a black screen that asks if I would like to boot windows normally or use the "last successful configuration." When I push enter on any of the options, the machine powers down.
I successfully made it into the bios once, but since then when I attempt to get to the bios menu it shuts off like it did for the other menu before.
Any ideas as to why this would happen?
The Old man thought it was the motherboard but if that were the case it wouldn't even get as far as it did, would it?
Maybe a RAM problem..?
