    Doesn't sound good. If the computer is still under warranty, you should contact the vendor for a replacement.

    Troubleshooting you can try... If you have a floppy drive, make sure that there are no floppy disks inserted. Disconnect all USB devices even keyboard/mouse (add the keyboard back later) Pull all add-in cards other than video. Disconnect ALL drives. See if you can POST to the initial banner If not, a POST diagnostic card is about the only way to see what error is occuring. You can also look at the manufacturer's site to see what error the blink code returns.
