What do you see when you turn it on? Power light comes on? What shows on the screen?

i see the power light come on, the screen is totally white, and after about 7 - 9 seconds, it all shuts off. I tested Ethernet, sound, and USB and they work as if it was full working

I've seen others report that symptom, but have no idea what causes it or if it can be fixed. How much effort and money do you want to put into it?

Don't know - possibly RAM, possibly a motherboard. Not a lot that is replaceable. My question was more to get you thinking of how much effort you wanted to put in where the probability of success was low, for a netbook that is more than five years old.

I doubt you can resurrect it for $50.
