Hello everyone,
My windows vista that i have had for about 3 years was working fine up until this morning... I was searching the web when out of NOWHERE the entire screen went white with small black dots all over it and a weird squiggly mark right in the middle. I couldnt get back to the previous screen so I turned the laptop off. When I tried to turn it back on, the laptop power button lit up and started whirring as if it was going to start up.... and then turned itself back off. Now (WITHOUT me pressing the power button) it is turning itself on for about 3-5 seconds with no message or light on the screen then turning itself back off. It has been turning itself on and off continuously without me touching anything for about 8 hours now.
***????
Someone help please =[

Its an HP laptop... i cant run any diagnostics or check anything because the laptop wont turn on. I dont even get to the startup screen before it shuts itself off again. It says on for about 2 seconds then turns off.
Thanks for the responses
