When booting my Acer Aspire 1640Z, the two front LED flash and nothing else.  The battery LED flashes 8 times and the power LED flashes once.

Does anyone know what this sequence indicates

    If that doesnt work then disconnect the mains and remove the battery then reconnect mains without battery and see if it starts up.
