My Dell Mini 10v isn't booting up at all, yet it has power. (tried both with battery/power supply, and all forms possible) When it has some sort of power, the white light will flash for about 8 seconds, then it turns off. A USB flash drive powers on also, but no display, no bios, nothing going on. No beeps either.
I bought it slightly used and have had it about 8 months or so (it's just out of warranty) and it's been running well, running Snow Leopard, and one day it just stopped. I'm not sure what I may have done to make it stop booting, but it wasn't dropped/wet.
Is it bricked? I may have turned on legacy usb support, if that matters, it's been a couple months since this happened.
I called Dell and they couldn't help, wanted me to send it in, but since I bought the thing on Craigslist they had to have the ownership transferred or something and it never got sent in before it expired.
I took it apart and unplugged the bios battery then turned it on, but that didn't get anything going.
Any suggestions? I have a flash usb drive I can try flashing bios with, but no usb floppy.
Anyone at Dell able to help get this approved? Or any easy fix?
I want my hackintosh back.
