Dear Hack community - would be ever so grateful for some help on this... :)

I have been using my Hack just fine for just coming up to a year - however...

I turned the unit on three days ago and it just won't boot. No clover screen, no 'beep' at the start - nothing!

the strange thing is, yesterday (after leaving it unplugged overnight), it booted up beyond the clover screen, I clicked the apple icon, but this time - it got stuck on the apple loading screen after the clover select screen. :|

This morning, I tried booting again, and it did what it did the first time - it didn't make it to the clover screen.

Sometimes also I am turning it on, and the power is just totally going out after 2 or 3 seconds. It's all so very odd.

Excruciatingly, I cannot enter any verbose mode as the keyboard will not recognise the connection until at least clover screen has loaded or is close to finishing loading.

Is this a power problem or a boot problem - and of course if so, can anyone most graciously post some sort of fix.

Thanks so much in advance!

Alex
