Initially I had problems with the video output not working. The computer would boot up before the log-in screen and I would get a black screen. The monitor would tell me there was no output and would turn itself to sleep mode.

For now, the video output issue has disappeared but the computer will turn itself off after about 15-20 minutes of use.
