Need some verification that i'm not missing anything here.

This afternoon purchased the above model from Currys after haggling a tenner off.
Opened it up - inserted battery - correctly and checked.

but this is the problem -

I go to switch it on, it boots up but 5 seconds later just switches off.

I try pressing a key, but nothing.

Switch it on again and it lingers in boot and switches off again.

This cycle then repeats itself.

In the 5 seconds i noted the battery showing 70% power.
So tried it connected through the main, but same problem.

So left it to charge to 100% and still the problem exists.

I have checked the battery is locked in ok.

I'm under the assumption that i will have to return it for a replacement, but just wanted to check with you guys that i've not missed anything, with this being my first netbook experience.

Thanks in advance.

im sure i read somewhere about msi wind netbooks building up static, which would prevent it turning on. i think it said take the battery out and disconnect from the mains for 10 mins, not sure if this helps

The MSI Wind turning itself off straight after booting was down to holding the power button too long, a bios update sorted that.

Pull out the battery and try booting from mains only if you haven't already.

Thanks for the suggestions - tried both, but to no avail - still keeps shutting down :x

Rep left to both :thumbsup:

I 've came across this problem before

What happens is the unit powers and goes off and comes on,, its does this about five or six times, what the unit is doing, its running a self daigs, because there is somethimg missing, on the ones i've come across is that the modem is missing and i had to replaced the mobo

my advise is to take it back

Cheers for that,
Fortunately I've checked stock online, and the store i purchased it from doesn't have them in stock, so have reserved one at my next nearest store.
Let's just hope it was a one off, and i won't get the same problem again. If i do it's on to an asus, or stretch the finances to the samsung.

Oh - rep left :thumbsup:

this not a common problem, these are a nice units, if it was me I would ask them to open it and check to make sure that it powers up fine, i would do this with any unit

Exchanged it today - all working fine, but only just noticed that the leather protector sleeve isn't in the box, so i'm going to have to go back tomorrow to get that now.
Good job i got this from a store and not online, otherwise it would take ages to sort, :x

Replaced the board due to a missing modem? (Windows or Linux simply does not load the modem driver if missing - it does not perform a self diagnosis and restart otherwise how would an engineer have time to read the results of the diagnosis). Anyway, could you not have sourced a replacement modem? Why did you not take yours back in your case?

5 seconds isn't very long to flash the BIOS. Assuming that the OP could have initiated a BIOS update within 5 seconds, this still isn't the most prudent of options.
