Help with MSI Wind Netbook u100 - won't boot up, etc.
Found 16th Nov 2010
Hi. A few days ago my daughter's netbook decided to freeze on us when we tried to open one of a number of different applications. I decided to do a scan in case there were any virus's or spam that were causing the problem. This seemed to improve things - great I thought! She had also been experiencing difficulty with her wireless connection - showed she had an excellent signal but only limited connectivity. So, I set about removing the adapter from Device Manager. It reinstalled successfully but then couldn't connect evenso - kept displaying 'acquiring ip address, etc.'. Any how, another problem was that the screen resolution setting had changed. Once more, i visted the Device Manager and saw under 'montitors' 2 entries both with exclaimation marks against them. I subsequently removed them hoping that they would reinstall as did the wireless adapter. Well, just at that point, my daughter came and retrieved it from me even though I hadn't completed the repair (if I ever was!!). When I finally caught up with her (had a few things to do in meantime), the power had gone on cos she'd be using it on battery. Since then, I have been unable to get anything from it. It just goes in a continual rebooting loop - doesn't matter what open I choose, it reboots back to the same screen - tell about 'Groundhog Day!!'. At the present time, I cannot locate the recovery disc that came with it - yes, that's right, a recovery DISC for a netbook without a disc drive. I had intended to copy it onto a usb or sd card if I can find it but in the meantime, I wondered if anyone can shed any light on this rather frustrating issue. BTW, I checked my emails last night to see when it was that I had bought if from Argos to see if it was still under guarantee - 26.10.2009 no less! Nevermind, eh?! Any thoughts would be gratefully received. Ta.
