Answers :

Given the symptoms, it points to motherboard.. if it was processor, video or ram. it wouldnt boot at all and you'd just get error beeps from your laptop. i'd first try resetting the bios, by removing the bios battery for 30 min, then putting it back in. if that doesnt work try changing it out, usually costs under 8 bucks. if that doesnt work then I would change out the motherboard, if its cost effective.
Pls take out any cd or dvd that is in the dvd drive and see if it helps always keep ur boot device priority to hard drive

if no help then ur OS is not loading in some cases when boot sector is damaged the OS doesnt load try factory resetting ur laptop thru backup disk if the os is loaded and it works then it is ok but if problem persists then ur hard drive is giving fault kindly replace it everything will be ok

there are 2 things that are responsible for booting process

1.RAM which infact switch on the motherboard and initiate procedure for booting process if u see any type of text or diaplay on screeen then it is working ok .

2. Hard disk , when the system powers up Ram asks hard disk for OS files to load the OS if hard disk is faulty it doesnt give up these files hence the OS doesnt load and booting process stops here it seems like u have stucked here so hard disk seems like the main culprit but pls try to reset ur OS thru backup disk here see if it works if after some time system faces same fault the replace hard drive

pls rate me fixya if i have fixed ur problem
