Hi,

 

Can you post back with the following:

 

1.  At the password screen, hit enter 3 times and you should receive a 'halt code' - post back with this code.

 

2.  What keyboard layout does your Mini have - ie QWERTY, AZERTY etc?

 

Regards,

 

DP-K

Hi,

 

The unlock code you listed in your first post had one too many characters and should be e9l13f3909 ( not e9l13f39091 ) however this may have just been a typo.

 

If you have entered e9l13f3909 with no luck, shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold  down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the battery out for the moment ), start the notebook and try entering the code e9l13f3909 again.

 

If this still isn't working, try removing the rtc cell - see Page 43 of your Maintenance & Service Guide - then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc.

 

Regards,
