SOURCE: computer wont start
I ran into the same problem with my Armada E500. In my case, it was a faulty RAM module. What I would suggest is start by removing the battery, and the charger. Then continue by removing the plastic section above your keyboard (there is a single screw holding it in place on the rear end of the laptop. This plastic covers the right-hand hindge) from there, there are four plastic tabs that you slide down to remove the keyboard. This will give you clear access to the ram. Remove the module(s) and, using a soft eraser, gently clean the contacts. If your laptop has two sticks of ram, I would also recommend putting them in opposite ram slots. After that, replace the keyboard and plastic bezzel, reconnect the battery and charger, and try to boot it up again

Your cpu might have died. As the computer is starting tap F8 and choose last known good configuration to see if you can get it started.

The 4 blinks are telling you that there is a fault. The same as Computer Bios Beeps.
I,d suggest removing the RAM/Memory, and replacing it. Press and hold the power button for more than 4 seconds, to ensure it isn,t in standby mode. failing this remove the cpu and re-seat it as it may be slightly out of position, or out of it,s socket. finally have a look at the back or underside to see if there is a reset switch/hole.

Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.
