laptop hangs before stage 4 power up?

Postby medoomi » Thu Jun 11, 2009 6:10 pm

Hi,

I'm totally new to OLPC, but am trying to help a friend with his.

I downloaded a developer key & all seemed to be going well, but after starting it up yesterday, it would not boot.

It would get to the following:
# Press the Power Button: the Power LED comes on and a startup sound plays.
# The backlight of the screen comes on and a white XO character appears in the center of the screen.
# After approximately 15 seconds, a white dot appears below the XO.

And then the white dot would remain there indefinitely.
Can someone please suggest what's going wrong.
Do I need to re-flash the firmware and or the OS... or is this indicative of a hardware failure?

Thanks
medoomi

Well, I found the wiki on upgrading the OS & firmware, ran that & the laptop seems to be behaving just fine. So, don't know the original problem, but it's now working fine :-)

You can re-install your copy of Operating System. It will work well.
