Great project, so that brings me to this
... [ Thx in advance
I have a 2 yr old Osmio F10 notebook [ have you operated on one or know of anybody that has ? ] ... that just went wonky. This is what happened > While reading the news the mouse/web page froze, couldn't escape sut down except to manually power it down by the Power Button.
After waiting 30 seconds or so unplugged & rebooting [ have tried both battery and AC it was plugged into the wall when this happened], then in a few seconds of the Qosmio flash screen appearing with the Intel Centrino logo appearing and the 4 bootable type icons on the bottom of the screen, the entire screen went into a series of paired dots from top to bottom & across the entire screen with the flashing cursor bar 2nd row down from the top left of the screen. Cannot boot F8 safe mode or to F12 to the recovery disc, it goes directly to this dotted screen immediately after the Qosmio flash screen
It's not the monitor as I hook it up to my PC monitor & get the same result.
It is scanned everyday for bugs as is mostly used by my wife for reasearch & medical study so I'm sure it's clean ...
I was told it might be the [Video Cd which is attached I understand to the mobo I understand ] or Motherboard ... If so, is it possible to get the Video Cd, or Motherboard off outta of the F10 easily & successfully & install a new one & how much are mobo's [ what model mobo ] for it ?
Also will all this destroy/erase all the data/info on my hard drive [ also would I be able to replace the hard drive current 5400prm 80GB HD with a new100GB 7200 rpm one & download the into/data onto the new installed one with out any problems, also would the higher speed HD cause too much heat inside or other issues will it be fine, ?
WOW, thx very much for taking the time & effort to read & reply to this, very much appreciated,
With regards in Desparation
