Doescitcsound like the computer boots normally? If so, the video card may be the fault. Put another in and try it then.

The “self test” on the monitor displays when not plugged into a computer. This means that it’s working. The LED error code 2 and 4 means the video subsystem has a problem. Either your video card is bad or bad memory module. Try reseating video card and/or memory.

I have an HP that does close to the same thing. Mine goes into a 'Perm-Sleep' mode that I can't seem to pull it out of. I have to remove the battery, then unplug the power adapter, not in that order. Leaving it in this condition for about a minute so that all the power stored in the RAM goes away. This is the same as holding the power button down for 10 to 15 seconds until it completly turns off, sometimes referred to as a 'Cold Boot.'
Once I have powered it down I have to go into the control panel and select the power settings and make sure that hibernate is not an option. If you close the lid on the laptop and the systems goes into a sleep state, it may be configured to go to hibernate after, say an hour or when the battery gets close to being drained. My computer does not like to come out of hibernate and I have to Cold Boot it, so I just don't let it go into a hibernation in the first place anymore.

The power supply may have gone south or there may be an overload on the motherboard, memory or one of the drives. Unplug one drive and restart, then another and another. Remove the memory and retry. If still nothing, try another supply. If still nothing, you may need professional help.
