Hello,
I have a HP DV4-1225 that just went dead. I tried starting it a few minutes later and it came up but went dead again in a matter of seconds. Can anyone help me?

Your PSU might be dying, try another PSU, if that PSU works then your current PSU is dead...

Really? I don't understand much about laptop quality...

lenovo, Sony are expensive here in my Country, even Toshiba is a decent laptop, Acer is the worst here... :)

if you dont need to game, and are looking for business-class extrememely good reliability, i have found IBM lapotps to be great. However, i only have had experience with the older ones (X31, R50, and one other i dont remember), so i cant say if the newer lenovos are any good.
