I have the same behavior on an HP Pavilion zv5000z -

have expressed this behavior in different places.

I would be willing to run some kind of diagnostic on
my equipment if you can recommend something. FBSD 4.10
gives no error messages. It just powers down after a
few seconds.
I just tried the Debian install CD and it boots just
fine. (Naturally, I'd prefer FreeBSD over Debian.)

made complete new CD set.

then booted ...

Everything goes nice (for the first few seconds ;-))
than I get the "Welcome to FreeBSD!" bootmenu,
but whatever I choose here, it displays the kernel
load message
and then shuts power off ....

about remembering what real fascism was – who
succumbed to it – and which nation saved humanity
from its rule.
