    kup,

    Don't know anything about your environment! Particularly if it EVER worked OK?

    I know that you are a beginner, but take a look at this article first, then come back with Q's and more info about what you may have done in the way of changes to your system, that may have led to this problem.

    Give this a thorough read thru!!

    Sir;
    Thank you so much for your help. I removed all the ribbon cables and cleaned them out with compressed air and tried to reboot and it worked. Again Thank You for your prompt help.
