1) Green light flashing when power button is pressed. When the power button is pressed and held, the green light flashes for a few seconds (approx. 10s) and stops flashing. I tried to press the reset button but nothing happen even though I press & hold. Please help, I really need some help to just switch on until it boots to windows. 

2) If the problem above solved, how should format it with new windows as it requesting to insert power adapter. I couldn't do that as I'm using the usb port for thumb drive where the OS is installed.
Thank you.

    You need an OTG cable to allow charging while using the USB port. I'm guessing the flashing power indicator is saying the battery is too low.

    Yeah, if it wil not take a charge then likely the battery is in need of replacement. :(

    Actually my guess is it charges the battery because when I insert the charger cable, the light was orange and then later is green(without flashing) I assume it has been fully charged. The green flashing light is only when I press the power button.
