see what happens.
I am fixing a Satellite C855-S5350 for a family member because the unit is out of warranty. It turns on for a few seconds, the optical drive spins and the fan blows, but then it turns off. When it's plugged in, it does this on a loop, turning itself on.
It's only 2 years old, so it should be working. I opened it up and cleaned the fan out of dust with a can of air, I've tried clearing the CMOS and the 30 seconds power button without any power cable or battery, I've tried switching the 2 sticks of RAM in every possible combination, but all this is to no avail.
Anyone have any idea what this could be? It's frustrating.
