Unplug it again then hold the Power Off/On button for about 20 seconds to discharge the motherboard components. At odd times this has unstuck things.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

From the manual:

If the power light is steady amber, there may be a power problem or an internal device malfunction.

✔ Best Answer
Sometimes a blue screen flash is a windows error. Usually the computer then restarts. I know yours isn't but still you might try to access the F8 boot menu and choose 'Disable automatic restart on system failure'. Some info here:
