If you have expansions like ram or other connected, try without them...

Probably your V600 CPU socket connector has gone kaput. You could try to forcefully press your thumb over the CPU socket when turning on the A600 power.

its recently had a new socket fitted as the old one had become so loose it wouldnt hold on i will try holding my thumb over it but i dont think thats the problem. i will report back. Yea just tried held down so hard its marked my hand and its still the same.
