Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?
I have the same problem, begins to boot up and then shuts off.
\015 I actually have two of these computers, the first one broke one day after the warranty was up and now the second 6 months later. Contacted HP, who really didn't care, guess I will be purchasing two new computers, but the won't be HP's.\015
What laptops are they and what are they doing?

I have an acer aspire 5735z. I left it online one night and in the a.m. it started 'misbehaving'. I press the power up button and it begins to boot - but never shows the screen and then shuts down.
