    Hello,

    I got my One in mail today and just a minute after starting up Linpus, the screen went blank and I couldn't do anyting but turn off the computer completely and start again - I didn't even do anything that (IMO) could have caused that. After it happened a couple more times, I started investigating the issue and I found out that when I turn off wifi (using the switch) immediately after reboot, the computer tends to work okay (this, however, was not 100% successful either, I got the blank screen later anyway).

    I since ran the Live update and even flashed the BIOS to the newest version (3304) but nothing seems to help: turn on -> wait a minute with wifi on -> blank screen & freeze. Has anyone else had that problem or do you know anything to help?

    I'm posting it in "Hardware Problems" because it seems wifi related but it could be just a Linpus problem as well...

    thank you
