My problem is that the laptop will not boot or anything. There would be time where i would go press the power button and the dvd drive would make noise as if it checks for a cd and usually then the hard drive light comes on and the computer boots. But there were some times just the dvd drive noise happens but drive light doesnt come on nothing on the screen comes on but after a few seconds the cpu fan turns on. And thats what its at now so i decided to open it up and boy were the HS vents were clogged.so i cleaned the fan and heat sink vents with some compressed air. and all clean and tidy but its still not booting. My best guess is that after many failed boots and the overheating the cpu might have burned out? Ive tried reseating the ram, taking the power plug off and battery out and holding power button down for 30 secs then putting the battery back in and plug and still the same result.hopefully someone can help me solve this. Anyone with any thoughts, suggestions? Thanks in advance. btw cpu is an amd turion tl-58 the laptop on the bottom says model w350a i know its a t series just not sure which one. could be t 1616 but not sure at all.
