When I first got it, it would start up for a second then shut off and the screen wouldn't even receive power. I have taken it appart and put it back together making sure everything is properly plugged in. Now when I go to turn it on, it will do the same thing but the screen is getting power. Plus all the lights on the laptop will flick on and off a couple times. Any ideas as to what is causing this?
