Cannot bootup XO Laptop

Postby azntiger » Thu Dec 02, 2010 5:20 pm

I plugged in the laptop and got a green battery light but the screen would turn on. I then tried to reset following the manual I found at: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Support . I waited about 2 minutes put the battery in then the ac charger but now there is no green battery light. Nothing lights up..

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Let's see what happens when you try to operate with just the AC power.

Turn off AC power and remove the battery.

Look for the brief amber flash of the battery light as you turn on (plug in) AC module -- this means the embedded controller is working.

Power on and look for the very brief, one time, flash of the microphone light (above left speaker) immediately after the power on. This means that the firmware is running.

If no display and this is an original XO (no software updates), then suspect the Real Time Clock battery problem. This will require repair by (or a loan of a serial adapter from) one of the repair centers.

Give us some feedback.
