xo hardware diagnostic test

Postby iamlamtoo » Mon Dec 24, 2007 1:46 pm

Press the left game key (the round one on the left) and the power on button will start the hardware check routine.
Just follow the directions on the screen. It will do a "test-all" on your xo.

Note: take out any SD card in the SD slot before running this, it will get into a "page fault" loop if I left a SDHC card in there.

Why do I want to run this?

I was trying out the Record activity and couldn't play back any audio. Fearing that I may have some broken hardware, I installed XoIrc and asking around on the various irc olpc support channel for help. I finally found out about this test from RickEvans on the #olpc-help irc channel (thanks).

I ran the test and happy to report that, according to the diag test, my xo's mic works fine. So it is likely just a software issue. May be they fill fix the activity in the next update.
