    I got this with no ac adapter and a dead battery, got an adapter and it takes about 3 minutes to get to the start up screen and then when you go to a program it kicks in and stops in about 10 seconds and goes to the blue error screen. I have tried running it without the battery same results, I tried that because the battery light in the display blinks continuously while it is on, and stay on after turn it off. I think it a short that I can find? PLEASE HELP!

    Thanks,

    try formatting and reinstalling windows to see if its a software problem.


    if its hardware, it could just be faulty. bad hard drive, RAM or GPU would be common in laptops.

    Also, you may want to be sure there is nothing, like dust, clogging the cooling vents or air pathways.
