My Mini 9 was working great. I had Leopard on it and was working fine. It was getting slower everytime but still usable. I was thinking in installing either Ubuntu or Win7... anyways... I was downloading a big torrent file and I left the computer there in the afternoon, downloading.
When I came back at night the mini was off. I turned it on and nothing would happen, only the power white LED light turns on. Since the Mini doesn't have any movable parts, fans or anything I don't know if it is really on.
If I force shut it down (holding the power button for several seconds) and then turn it on several again and again, sometimes I get the Dell logo and it would say something about not booting then would turn off.
I can't get to that screen anymore, that's why I dont really know what the error was exactly. Now it doesn't boot at all, never. Only the white led.
I tried replacing the ram. Using a different one and it's still the same.
What are the symptoms of a non working SSD
? Since it was getting slower everytime I was thinking it probably died. I tried to remove it and see if the computer turns on but I can't remove the screws!
Battery or no battery is the same.
I've read about the D169H Switch Board piece... could that be the problem?
Any advice is very well appreciated!
