My 3-month-old (has been with me that time, brought brand new) wont start or anything. I press the power button and all it does is... nothing, power led blinks on and off non-stop (not fast) no fans running in the back and screen completely black. Basically all it does is blink, no fans no anything.
Need help ASAP, I'm a college student I can't afford to pay for a repair and need to finish projects for this week. I'm desperate. Idk what board means so I put that.

@bermuda1212 Have you attempted to connect the device to an alternate power cord or adapter?
Or check with another wall outlet, excluding any surge protectors to check if it works?

(simply select your description of the issue from the bottom of the screen to gain access to the next set of steps that should resolve your concern).
If the above doesn't help or the steps are insufficient, check the below steps:
Let's start with a hard reset of your notebook computer before you try any other troubleshooting steps.
Reasons for a hard reset
A hard reset has the following effects:
