I have just acquired a Dell Studio PP33L that I want to use as my first Linix machine but it don't work.
I'm unable to get it turned on. Have the normal power supply which lights up its plug. When I plug it in the battery light comes on a while then turns off. Pressing the on/off button results in nothing. If I hold down the wifi search buttton and the power button, I get a couple flashes of the wifi light (I don't think wifi is installed) bu that is it.
Any suggestions or is there a better group to be asking this in?
I have a USB "stick" with Ubuntu as well as a Cd of the same.
