I aquired this laptop...

It's quite nice and I'm guessing bout a 200 or 300Mhz processor, however whenever i power it on, it hits the bios screen, doesn't even get to the POST, jus flashes some text (something like AMIbios copyright blah blah) and then turns off... or turns the screen off.

Anyone know wat the problem could be?

Hook up a CRT and see if it is trying to output the display to one. I had one that did that because it was set to do that. But that did go past POST if I remember correctly...
