Hi
My old laptop turns on once. When shut it doesn't turn on back. It starts working again only after a week. Strange but true. When it turns on it works fine.
Could someone help me?
Thanks a lot

When it is powered off, you could try removing the battery. See if it will boot up without the battery in the laptop. I suspect it is a faulty battery.
