Hi all,

It's a surprising problem that i have with two travelmate 230. When
i press the power-on key, the system don't boot and the power-on led is
off. I can hear the fan is working.
To boot the system i must press several keys and the power-on in the same
time (ie Alt + space + 7 + power-on).
The problem remain the same with or without the battery and after a bios
upgrade. After what the system works fine.
Perehaps the problem is well known...

Thanks in advance.
