Lazy Web - Packard Bell iStart C5100 won't boot
Before I pack the thing up and take it back to my local store:
I bought a Packard Bell iStart C5100 a couple of days ago for my son. It worked perfectly for exactly 2 days and now it has decided not to boot anymore. Or more exactly: It will power on for a second and then switch itself off. Pull the mains plug - wait a moment - plug back in and it powers on for a second before... (you get the idea). I've checked the mains cable, wall socket etc.
I actually managed to get it to boot again last night. But then after powering down it again refused to start.
The only addition to the system was a WiFi card that has been in since I first installed the system. I'll take it out later to see if that helps.
Any other ideas out there?

Sponsoring the Rails community in Germany
While the Silent Penguin takes a break from blogging (I think he may have gone into early retirement) - here some news from the other part of my life:
I'm proud to announce that we're sponsoring the German Ruby on Rails Conference that takes place on June 22nd in Frankfurt. Our Rails based activities are expanding quite a bit at the moment and we're excited to see the gaining traction here in Germany. See you in Frankfurt!
While we're on the subject, if you're on Rails or think you'd be just the right guy to roll with us - then why not drop me a line?
