Default start up problem - 11-04-2009, 07:40 PM

HELP ! my beloved Mini Me is refusing to come on and greet me after working faultlessly since new.All I get after pushing the on/off switch is the LED light which comes on for barely 6 seconds then goes off.That's it ,no screen, no kick in to the OS then turning off ,no messages,No welcome,just a blank screen.
This happens irrespective of it being on AC or battery.I have looked for a solution on Google but can't find one .
I am now getting withdrawals symptoms and need help.

Hmmm. Well, you might want to check all your SSD/RAM connections and remove/reinsert the battery as well.

How long have you had it? Did you install any 3rd party hardware? Did you drop it? Did it get wet?

Also, do you have it under warranty? I know it's a stretch but having a warranty might be necessary!

Danmanx FIXED under guarantee,required new motherboard.
Is a Ram upgrade to 2 gig worthwhile in your opinion

I think a 2Gig RAM upgrade is the cheapest performance improvement you will find.
