Default Mini 10V Hangs on restart, any ideas? - 07-11-2009, 06:24 PM

Almost everything on the Mini 10v is OK (except sound crackling after sleep & no mic, but not worried about that)

Everything is standard. A restart caused the machine to hang on exiting... the desktop is cleared leaving only the desktop picture, then the machine hangs.

Anyone else had this?

Cheers all!

No kernel panic (grey dialog box telling you to restart)? I've had that before. I think it's a known issue if you have bluetooth enabled (I don't).

Dell mini 10v: N270, 2GB RAM, 120GB HD, A03, no BT, OSX 10.6.1

I have experienced this a few times myself when I decide to RESTART. That's why instead I do Shutdowns now...

Same here. Happened when trying to restart (as it was shutting down), but I held down the power button, woke it up, and it was fine.

It has happened to me a few times on my A90 ... so I think it's a function of OSX and the DELL EFI stuff - not limited to just the 10v.

let me drop the knowledge is a dell efi issue restart will only work properly if you have not put your computer to sleep. If you want to install updates that need a restart you must do so before you put the computer to sleep. From a cold start restart works perfect just not after sleep.
