I'm reaching out looking for help, I have been reading lots here and this site actually helped me fix my Bluetooth (was turned off previous owner and I didn't reinstall program, why with a mini give a cd and not an SD card? if write locked gotta be a cheap and safer option??), and learned about the F11 and F12 key thing (Fn+Z, Fn+x), so here seems be the best place to ask anything mini as you guys seems to know best ^^.
I have a Dell mini 9 that I bought off a website, it seemed to work perfectly well, however after a few weeks I've come accross a little problem. the mini seems to randomly freeze, I don't know why, I have however been to make it happen if I try, if I install windows or install a game called torchwood (I've check the install file it works fin on main lappy) the mini freezes. It also freezes randomly while booting in use the system just locks up, USB still powered but if removed and put back in the device seems not to get power.
I've run the Dell diagnostic stuff all seemed to pass, I've swapped ram still happens the only thing I haven't swapped it the SSD
or Processor, I've a mini 1210 or 1012 (the one with the fancy purple artwork) around I could try, but rather not, also read about reflowing but not really sure my skills are up to that, I plan on getting more ram and a 16GB+ SSD
if i can get it working as I want something on the go which is why I got it but doesnt seem worth it if I can't stop this freezing issue
one thing I did do was swap the broadcom Wi-Fi card for a inter 3945 not sure if that matters, but at a lost, as I say I can load from USB and try install windows format SSD
but system still freezes, could really do with some suggestion/help please
