    Blue LEDs sound like the xecuter 2.6 The symptom you describe sounds like a short to the motherboard from improperly placed chip. It's possible the chip is not meeting the contacts correctly. If this is solderless, you can try to reposition it back into the correct spot. If the chip was flashed improperly, I believe there is a recovery procedure. Hold both power and eject together and it is supposed to boot from backup bios (if this is full version and not lite). If both those still don't work, you have to either get an external programmer to reprogram the chip or buy a new modchip.
