    please dont send msgs, as i want everyone to see issue and possible resolution steps.
    try
    external monitor
    cmos battery reset
    no power no battery plug in USB hold FN ESC WHILE PLUGGING IN AC POWER CORD THEN POWER BUTTON STILL HOLDING FN ESC.

    since it shutdown i believe it tried to flash but it doesnt want this version. maybe older?
