    First question, what changed.......anything? You just woke up and it stopped working? You installed/upgraded some software? Need some more details...

    Take it back to the Apple Store.

    Sorry there's no way anyone can help you troubleshoot with the info you've provided, such as, "then the computer like dies."

    Good luck.

    Did you buy it off eBay band new, boxed & sealed? Or was it second hand / unboxed, used?

    If the later is true in this case, you should take this as a lesson learnt with regards to buying hardware second hand on the internet that you can't test / inspect first.
