I have a similar problem. Nyaranga gave me the idea of changing out the Ram Memory. Instead, I just added an additional chip. So far, the screen has come up and the computer is running fine. You may email me at a later time, and I will tell you if it is still working. Thank you Nyaranga for this helpful suggestion.

\015\012Now I have another question. I have an HP dv5116nr notebook.which looks to be in beautiful shape. Problem: The computer tries to boot, a screen appears giving me an F10 and an Esc choice. Neither one of these keys works. The computer then just completely shuts down. I cannot get it into bios. I have reset the bios by removing the battery for quite awhile. Still having the same problem. Replaced the Hard Drive. Still the same problem. I borrow a memory chip from this computer to fix the problem with the above computer from first problem. I added one of the dv5116nr chips to the 450SX$ that is now working fine.

Does it do this when it's running on just the battery with no AC ,or does it only do it when running on ac adapter ? If it only behaves this way when using the ac adapter,then the ac adapter is bad.
\015\012 Can you hear your fan running in your laptop ? If not, your processor may be overheating(which would also cause problems like this).
\015\012However,If it behaves this way when running only on battery,then I would think you need to replace one or more of your memory chips (DIMM'S).
