Using the buttons on your monitor, see if there is a "burn in mode" or "self test mode", and turn it off via the monitors other buttons. (not the power switch)

Hi, The part where you see some color bars and blinking green led is what we call MONITOR SELF TEST. A diagnostic pattern consisting of four colors (red, green, blue and white) appears, and the LED flashes slowly. this happens when signal cable from the monitor is disconnected from the tower and leaving the power chord for the monitor plugged in. If the monitor works properly on a different computer. then its a problem with the computer's video card sending out signal. im 85% sure that its a problem with your video card.

I guess this is not an intermittent issue though right? Kindly do these process/procedure if things able to work.
1. Remove the Optical Drive.
2. Remove the Hard Drive.
3. Remove all memories (RAM).
After removing those devices try to turn on the laptop eventhough it produces beeping noises and stay in the BIOS screen. Have to observe if it restarts again or shuts down on its own. If the scenario appears that it is still shuts down after 5 seconds then, motherboard is not working properly. Actually there would be more troubleshooting steps for this to isolate the issue. If you can able to follow some of the steps then my piece of advice is to call Dell technical support for some assistance by removing some of FRU devices. Things are more likely critical. If you're unable to do the thing then have then replace the laptop in this regard if it is still under warranty. That's one of a good thing. Hope things will help you to determine. Thank you.

Flip Ultra - freezes at initial Flip screen - will not shut off

I found a fix that worked for mine.
It was doing the same thing, freezing at the "Flip" screen and would not turn off. I did the remove the batteries deal. It worked once but issue reoccured 2 months later and the battery fix didn't fix it.
What did fix it was...
With the camera off, hold down the Right Arrow button and the trash can button at the same time and turn the camera on.
A few seconds later, I was at the start recording screen!!

Good Luck!
