Did it work with the i3 after you upgraded the CPU, before you ran the BIOS update? And which BIOS update version did you run?

Is power button steady blue or blinking?

If you reboot and immediately press F2, can you open BIOS setup? If you can, copy down all current settings because you may need them later.

3-4 is a RAM error so try this:

Power off and unplug

Press/hold power button for ~15 sec

Open case and remove motherboard battery

Press/hold power button for ~30 sec

Carefully reseat RAM modules in their slots

Reinstall battery

Close up and see if it boots now

If it still won't boot, repeat the process, but remove the module from slot B1, leaving only the one in slot A1.  Then repeat again but swap the other RAM module into slot A1 to see if you can find a bum module. If they both work in slot A1, repeat the process and add the 2nd module to slot B1 to see if there's a bum slot.
