trying to get it to boot...

A project log for $100 Raspberry Pi 2 laptop using a lapdock

The Pi-Top will run you $300. This project creates an equivalent product for 1/3 the cost by being resourceful with cheap hardware.

I wired it all up and did the USB data splice so the lapdock would recognize the RPI, but it won't boot. When I push power on the lapdock, the RPI turns on for a bit like it's starting up, then it turns off for about 30 seconds, and then the lights on both it and the lapdock flash as if something is happening, but then it all turns off. I edited the config.txt file for the RPi to have suitable parameters but I don't know why it won't start up.
