    Unfortunately I'm quite sure laptops don't BIOS code beep like a tower PC, so one would not know if it's passing BIOS. Laptops do sometimes have a problem with wires at the hinge point.

    Have you tried to enter the BIOS at boot with the assigned key?

    yep... its the F2 button nothing happens
    and the light of the processing indicator is just like a signal light of a car... blinking

    The blinking light is an indication that it's reading data off the hard drive. Is it not? We may conclude that it may be the screen? Did a repair disk that came with the machine?

    BTW, where did you get a machine with preinstalled Windows 8 developers preview build 8102 on it? Sounds odd to me. Or is it your other machine?

    I would assume it's the screen or feed cable. I understand that's the biggest problem with laptops is the screens. I'd advise to take it back to where you purchased at this point. Bummer, I know, but I don't have any other ideas. Good luck to you.
