    Well do you ever use this laptop to access the internet? If you do then you probably have got the MS Blast virus everyone is talking about. I have several friends that got it, and that is exactly what happened. What OS are you using?

    Does your computer stay on for about 90 seconds, then shuts down?

    If so, like stated above, you got that virus.

    You can go to symantec.com and there is a fix there.

    edit/ it doesnt matter what OS he has, it affects all OS.

    Oops RPC means Remote Procedure Call. Does it just cycle? Where it turns itself off everytime you turn it on? There is away to stop that and download the patch hold on and I will try to give you a link.

    well first you need to check the power supply so you can get the damn thing on, then try start it in safe mode. forget it just take it to best buy and let those fools work on it.
