Linx 1010 won't boot up on 1st use

by 3chris70 » December 25th, 2016, 2:24 pm

Just bought my son a Linx1010 for Christmas but on 1st use once you've put your details in and WiFi password it comes to the "just a moment" screen, after about a minute the screen goes black and nothing happens. I've tried rebooting a few times but it just does the same thing or goes to a defaultuser0 login screen. Safe to say my lad is pretty gutted and any help would be appreciated otherwise it looks like a trip out to pc world tomorrow to get it replaced.

Merry Christmas everyone.

No doubt you have made sure that the Linx is fully charged?

hey, registered too, just to say we are experiencing the same thing.

Fully charged. Give you blue setup screen for UK time etc, next screen is option for to use express settings but then flashes a few times and has a blank screen, can see mouse move and when power button is held down, the drag-to-shut-down appears, but nothing else.

So got mine working.... On boot press and HOLD the F8 key assuming you have a keyboard dock It will get you to Windows recovery.

Cant remember exact steps but go to advanced and reset PC keeping files . IT will ask you to choose this option if you are keeping PC.

Then it will reset - slow progress % showed ( I left it overnight)

On Boot DO NOT connect to wireless and set up with local password ( may need a couple of reboots) and then it should set itself up and boot OK.

Once booted you can set up wireless and away you go.
