This may not be your Laptop problem but it may.
I really hate to say this but. seems to me and this comes from hardware experience
symptom loads up but does not boot no swap file.
symptom loads up but stops before complete. no swap file.
sympton does not load at all. all three things say the cpu is not taking the page files from ram and putting it some where like a vurtial swap file. or an actual swap partion. all three mean the cpu is not working.
the cdrom drive works the hard drive works but for some reason the is no memory swap so when the ram is full and know where to go it stops it's full.
Bad cpu bad bios configure. any way it is a hardware issue. and every computer that came into my shop that had this problem could not pass the hardware test on the cpu.
this went with fan failure and over heating.
Most were AMD at the time but alot were Intel.
I used to use redhat 7 could load the whole system up buit never boot past a splash screen same for windows 98 and xp. bad CPU.
Dsl would never boot my toshiba it would crash from the boot it was a OS problem it did not have the drivers for my bridge.
