Got this machine off ebay a month ago. SSD
had apparently failed so got a new one from an old machine and it worked. Installed XP, Drivers etc.
I then left it on to do a windows update & did a clean disk at the same time (as I had over 2gigs worth of "compressed files" and 20mb space free.
Anyway left it on for a few hours and every now and then the screen would turn off which I assume is the battery saving thing on XP. Anway at the end I decided to move the trackpad to get the screen back on to check my progress and the whole thing stayed blank. Then I looked closer and the backlight had completely gone!
As I couldnt really see how to get to shut down, I just held the off button, but to my dismay it wouldnt power off. So I disconnected the power supply & battery.
Left it for a while as it was quite hot.
Turned it back on, and well it didnt turn on. After each press of the on button the power led would blink after a few seconds delay but then nothing else.
Tried replacing RAM/SSD
/Battery. Tried battery in another dell mini 9 and it worked.
Got another 134 days left on warrenty.
Any clue as to what this problem can be?
