Netbook pro won't startup

Hello just got a Netbook Pro off of ebay. I put batteries in and charged it and it won't start up when I open it. Nor does it start by pressing escape. Soft reset does nothing. Hard reset brings up the Netbook Pro splash screen and a status bar suggesting Os is being loaded. When the status bar ends the machine just shuts off again and once again cannot be restarted by opening or (esc) Key. Please advise. Thanks in advance!

Re: netbook pro won't startup

Go to netBookPro boot menu as follows: Whilst the splash screen comes up insert a paperclip in the tiny reset hole near the enter key, then press Ctrl + D +Esc(On). Now the netBookPro boot menu should come up, then select the option : !) Clean start main OS (just press Shift +1). Now you should get a reboot with the initial OS-settings. I experienced the same problem after running xclkcfg.exe (an overclock utility for the Sigmarion III ) so best stay away from this utility. have fun Rob.

Your battery is probably low. Anytime you do a hard reset make sure the ac cord is plugged in.

IAdmin Password - Workabout Pro 7527 G2 on ebay,


If the seller is not responding to fix this problem then you need to contact the seller by phone. You can request his info from EBay. If you still can't get in touch with him then the next step is to file a claim with EBAy and Paypal and get your money back. Sellers are responsible for selling you WORKING merchandise. It could be stolen which is why he may not be getting the password to you.
SIgn into your EBay account and then on the upper right is a link to Contact Ebay. Good luck.

Frozen at windows mobile screen

hello.  ..this is a rom for your phone. i think you need to reinstall your curent rom because it's damaged. i think it's best to put into bootloader first. Press and hold both the "Right Soft key" & the "Camera Button" at the same time. Then hit the power button with the other two buttons still depressed. You will now be in the USB Downloader mode.

if the battery completely died, you have to leave it charging for more than a few minuites. try anywhere from 10 to 30 minuites and it should be charged enough to turn on

Psion Netbook and the rain and Windows

If this is the original Psion NetBook (not the Pro) then you are stuck with the OS you have.
I would remove both the OS/RAM DIMM and the extra RAM DIMM if you have it, as well as removing the CF card. Make sure they are all clean and dry. Take the battery off too. You then need to leave the netbook open, with the CF card slot open in an airing cupboard or other warm dry place for 24 hours. Leave the battery in there too.
Once everything appears dry again, put it all back together and it should work. If not, you'll have to send it off for repair. There are still some ex-Psion engineers in the UK doing netbook repairs, have a look on the pdaforums for addresses.
Hope you get it fixed!
