My step son gave me a dead laptop. The symptom is when I try to turn it on, it fail to load the OS. I tried to put it in set up mode by hitting F2 to get into the setup mode. But it will turn off in like 20 seconds. I tapped F11 to get to safe mode and still it will turn off by itself. Do you agree this is more hardware problem than virus? I would expect I can boot up to setup mode no matter what. Also I should be able to boot into safe mode even it's a virus attack. Please advice before I dump the whole thing in the garby can!!!
