OK! nobody worry the problem is fixed..and i can't believe i'm going to embarass myself like this, but it sure does help when you hit the power button, eh? it looks like an LED on my unit, but apparently its a button too! anyway...now onto problem #2
now i am in the phase of trying to output video to the unit. i have a really nice shielded video cable running from my video card (ati xpert@play agp 4mb) to the unit. when i turn it on, for a split second i can see windows, but it's all messed up and slowly fades to a blank screen. any ideas? thanks.
