Galaxy s5 wont turn on

by kindadinosaur / October 19, 2015 6:57 PM PDT

I was on my phone walking back from class when the screen went black and the led was flashing from blue to cyan, not quick but it wasnt slow either. I tried turning the phone on and nothing was happening except the led would just be green. It would stay green and wouldnt turn off. I took my battery out, tried to charge it, tried booting in safe mode, just about everything and it still wont turn on. I have tried clearing it with the volume down+home+power ive tried just about any combination of buttons possible. I need your help guys, please!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
