My mother-in-law has a Dell Mini 10 (Windows XP) that went into hibernation due to the battery being flat but won't come out of it now. When the power button is pressed, the white (power?) button comes on but the screen remains blank (as if it wasn't switched on).
I have tried holding in the power button to force a shutdwn and taking out the battery and with the power unplugged, pressing the power button is for 30 seconds but the problem remains.
I appreciate that this may be a common issue with this model but is there any way to get this to boot up into either a bootable USB or to just start a reboot with the hibernate/system state ignored.
