Toshiba Equium not POSTing

I was using an old Toshiba Equium laptop as a DVR for a security cameras. This weekend I was going to tidy up my Television area as it was very messy! I unplugged everything and when I got to the laptop it suddenly shut down (before I touched it). then once I came back to plug it back in I pressed the on button and nothing happens, I tried again and accidentally hit the internet button and it fired up! and after a few second the fans turned off and the lights turned off so I tried replacing the ram and that did nothing. after that I ran out of things to try, could people post suggestions!


in summary it only turns on when you press the internet button, once it comes on it shuts back off immediately!


hope you can help!

It turned on for about half an hour and then shut off and continued to do the same thing
