thanks Si - yeah I think I ended up with a lemon. I'm pretty sure the start up problems are due to a faulty adapter, as it starts up fine when it's not plugged in, so I've ordered a new one. Aside from that it's still having trouble restarting (it just shuts down) but I don't think that's the end of the world...

It's not been my week for electronics. Aside from my laptop and warranty woes, my ipod has gone and died on me and only comes on when I purposefully drop it on the floor (i know, but it does the trick :blush: ) and the acer monitor decided to die on me just as I was finishing modelling it and so has been replaced!

ha ha... :headbang:

thanks leonlabyk - i'm looking forward to getting back into this.

gster - ha ha - it seems as soon as i get some money something expensive happens. no updates just yet - still waiting for a new adapter to arrive - have been playing resident evil 4 while i wait which is lots of fun.

yeah, that pdf was really helpful and there were a couple of other good articles on her site as well.

cheers.

Can you not ask your money back, if you have the reciept and a good reason i don't see why they won't give you your money back.
Don't know how much you paid for it but if it is +1000 dollari would'nt take it laying down but i've a bit of a short stop :angery:. and looking at the details of your story it seems you're a bit more patient

Have you tried resetting cmos, did they check memory compatibility.

unfortunately the manufacturers warranty has run out so i'm not going to get my money back. Basically the problem is that when I turn it on it usually starts up fine the first time, but the next time i turn it on, the led clock won't come on, the disc drive won't open, the sound is choppy and it makes some worrying popping sounds as it's starting up. the repair shop told me that the adapter needed to be replaced, but when i got a new one today, it was still having the same problems.

not sure what you mean by checking cmos or memory compatibility.

sometimes the ram memory conflicts, with software and/or hardware.
resetting cmos sometimes helps, it will reset your motherboard

well - still no laptop, so I decided to steal my wife's computer and started to make a fly. the thorax is proving to be a real headache as it's impossible to find any decent close ups or shots from underneath.

anyway - here's my progress so far...

by the way i tried the cmos settings, but still no joy.
