Hey,

Try this, unplug every thing that is connected to the notebook including the power supply. Remove the battery of the unit. Now press and hold the power button on the notebook for 30 to 40 seconds. Now re-connect every thing and try to power up the machine, you should be up and running.

The cause of this behaviour is the buildup of static on the machine.

Your computer is not completing the POST. You probably have a memory error.

Computer turns on and off


One at a time, unplug all wired acessories on the motherboard and turn pc on. When pc stays on, you will find the bad connector or component. Make sure to plug all others in one at a time to confirm only one bad connection. If no bad connections show, remove all components from motherboard one at a time until pc stays on.

When break pressed turn signal turns stays on and doesnt flash


My first guess would be a ground problem. The bulbs are mounted in plastic sockets and grounded to the car by a black wire. If one socket is not grounded it will try to ground thru a different socket.
I would check for voltage and ground on each socket in the back.

Monitor will not stay on


Generally Monitors have a single light in fron pannel, with dual mode colors as Green and Orange.

Green: Everything is OK .
Orange: Everything is OK, except it is not getting
any signals from computer or other source.

Try with any other monitor with your CPU, it may happen that CPU actually not providing any signal to Monitor. Try checking the "NUM LOCK" button on and off, whether it makes the light on keyboard to flash on or off.
If NUM LOCK is woking OK, there is surely some problme with your monitor and you need to get is checked physically with an engineer.
