Sony Vaio not booting

Have a problem with my Sony Vaio A115b (PCG-8Q8M) When I turn it on it
starts to boot up, can hear hard drive noise, fan etc. after about 1-2
seconds everything just stops like its rebooting (lights go out too).
then everything comes back to life. The screen stays blank through out.

I have tried taking the ram out, swapping it over etc but no luck.

Anyone have any ideas what could be up?

"...then everything comes back to life." - do mean to say that the HD
and fan start to run after the interruption?  Frankly, it sounds like a
mainboard component problem to me.

Seems to be working fine now. No idea what is was.
