I tried to reinstall the OS from USB and I accidentally set ‘OS select’ to ‘Linux’ in BIOS. Now my laptop does not boot. When I turn it on, the screen stays black, the CHUWI logo does not appear. The power LED and keyboard backlight come on, but that’s all that happens.
No, I was not able to fix it. Tried Esc, F2, Fn+F2, F12 or Del to get into the BIOS and then “(F2 + Enter +) F3 + Enter + F4 + Enter” to reset the BIOS.
Have not checked the HDMI output, since I don’t have a micro-HDMI cable. (In another thread for another model but the same issue, the HDMI output also remained black.)
This bug is a bit unexpected since Chuwi advertises Linux compatibility (at least on Chuwi’s and Aliexpress’s websites). This is clearly a factory defect in my opinion, even without the Linux compatibility claim.
Tried it, did not work (Keys: F7, 1x DownArrow, Enter. Activity light on the USB stick/key does not light up).
After all the key-sequences I’ve tried, it looks like the BIOS is not functioning at all (only the keyboard hardware). If that’s the case, access to the motherboard or replacing the motherboard/lapbook will probably be required.
Same, USB port isn’t working , I’ll try hdmi but guess it’ll be the same.
Edit. Didn’t work, nothing works, I’ll just send it back, is annoying to buy something, paying DHL shipping and duties, being supposedly good and not being able to boot even a different operative system and that the BIOS just locks and breaks if you try to boot it. Worst experience ever…
Sorry to hear this but the laptop was working from the beginning and with an operating system installed. All malfunction was caused by its manipulation, which I understand is expert, but that cannot be verified if it was correct.
The guaranty is in China and I’m in Mexico and have to pay the shipping costs like 70 dollars, it takes more than 2 months to get it fixed and back they say, the BIOS is non functional and I’ve s windows professional key extra anyway, this is the cheapest and easiest solution, I’ll do exactly what they will do.
