Clean it again you missed something or maybe a gasket is on wrong. If you went through all of that it should run fine. Stihl usually rebuilds and runs well. Slow down turbo maybe you got a little ahead of yourself. Good Luck...

Rebuilt a Stihl TS400 concrete saw, and now it wont cut, the engine dies down and has no power but revs up? Ive tried everything!

All these people are missing a basic thing: check the compression. If you did all thus work yourself, you may have reused the head gasket or not installed the new one correctly. It will run with no load, but once force in exerted, the pressure finds the leak and exploits it. There is a reason 2-cycle engines run at 130-160 psi normally.

Dell dimesion wont turn on at all

So it doesn't power up at all? I'm only asking because you said it's not the connection.
If it doesn't power up, open the box and reseat everything, something may have come loose during the move.

You need new battery for sure.When you install the new battery, check it with a volt meter (D.C.) that it charges at 14V +/- 0.5V at idle with your high beam on. If it doesn't, you need a regulator/rectifier as well.

Hey everyone i just bought a new nokia e7, but there is a big rpoblem that my ******** is'nt working please help me please i am so worried!

There is a linking cord for the display main panel to the main board and this could have snapped. SO it is best to take consensus with the Nokia support center , get estimate and replace.
If not there is fault in the motherboard. Claim for warranty if the set is less than a year old and do not tamper.
