My Netbook is Emachine E355, it has a strange problem.

When i shut down and later want to start it. Its indicators blinks blue but the screen remains dark and continues like it.

If I have to make it start, firstly I have to detach batterry for 5 minutes.

The other thing I have to make sure to get it started is that it has to be in unplugged state.

Then only if I press power button then it starts in a normal way.

Thank you in advance.

If it is new, take it back –  Dave Aug 29 '12 at 13:04
Also, take out the CMOS battery and leave it out for 2 minutes, replace it and see what that does. –  Dave Aug 29 '12 at 13:50
