DOA — power light but screen not working
#1
Just unpacked the shiny new laptop, it's charged up and the power light goes green when powered on but the screen remains off. Nothin. Black.

Suggestions?
#2
One or two suggestions:
  • If you shake the machine, does anything rattle? If so, the eMMC might have come loose, so you need to open it, and re-seat the eMMC.
  • Find a distro (such as Manjaro) for SD card, flash it using a different PC, and try to boot from that; any luck?
