The graphics card in the PC is very likely faulty. It is possible to remove the graphics card and reconnect the monitor cable to the onboard graphics. Look on youtube for help on removing the graphics card (try a search for iq772). The monitor connector is at the front of the motherboard, near to the graphics card. re-connect it to a similar connector to the left to use the on-board graphics.

Here is a fix I got from Sandisk support: Let's try this: take the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After that, connect it to your computer (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer? Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on. Now, another thing I found that worked once, was to remove the battery, hold the power button for 5 seconds, then replace battery. The unit powered up after that.
