Hi, I bought a Dell mini after seeing it as a deal on this site last year. It is (was) an excellent machine and I was really happy with it.
However 1 year and 1 week after delivery it has broken - typically 1 week out of warantee.
Yesterday I installed Coral Draw trial software on it, and also was trying to install a Twain driver and scanner software for an old USB scanner I have. (I know corel draw on the netbook is not a good idea but it was only very temporary test)
Later that night it suddenly switched itself off.
Tried to reboot and got to the safe\etc boot screen but choosing safe or normal it would just blink for a few seconds and then switch off.
Now when I turn it on the light comes on for about 2 seconds and it switches itself off, nothing on the screen.
Help - there doesn't seem like a lot I can do? Anyone provide any pointer as to what the problem is likely to be?
How much it will cost to fix, or if I can connect via another computer etc etc.
