    The E310 has had early failure of the hard drive, and of the LCD Screen inverter.
    Try shutting down by pressing the on button for 12 seconds.
    The wait 20 second and press the on button, while then repeatedly pressing the <F8> key once per second to see if it will start in SAFE MODE.
    If you do not get a screen in Safe Mode, your screen inverter has likely gone bad... a fix that requires a technician who knows which inverter to order...
    But it could still be the hard drive, so you may want to try other options such as attempting to boot to a CD...
