  1. On the power button there is a orange flashing light not letting you turn on your machine.

    Well Iv'e got a simple fix

    Just do what I do:

    First check your cables are connected securley

    Secondly Press the power button.

    Thirdly Remove the power cable.

    Wait 10 seconds, Cross fingers.

    *Important Part* While Inserting the power cable quickly press the power button.

    The post should not come on.

    Then simply power on your machine.


    Your Welcome
