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.
