A friend of a friend has asked me to look at one of the above, it hasn't worked for 8 months! I switched it on and it worked perfectly, switched off but could not then get it to start again the next day. It either works perfectly or is electrically dead, it will not work just on the battery so clearly there is a problem with it. Does anyone have any experience of these laptops?
Are there are any well known problems or weaknesses with them? Any help would be much apreciated.

Loose connection somewhere?
Pos. that the power cable isn't being inserted all way in, or conversely, too far.

Sorry can't really help, but will bump you up the page.

sounds like a dodgy power socket on the motherboard,

easy to replace or resolder

however the hard bit is stripping the laptop down to get to the motherboard and reassembling it afterwards.
