DO NOT TURN OFF THE POWER THE BOX WITH AUTOMATICALLY REBOOT!


My question is, how long should this last, going already about 30 min

Don't use Dreamup Kev, I use Flashwizard, as didn't have a lot of luck with Dreamup, although many people like it.

It shouldn't take too long to load and reboot, but if it doesn't do anything, just switch off at the mains. You may then need to flash with a Null Modem cable, but it is quite easy. :)

Hi Kev
If you can get into communications panel and set up your ip adress you should be able to use flash wizzard. But as rolf says null modem is your best way now that it has froze on you. Try downloading from somewhere else as some images are really bad and dont set up right.

thanks 4 the reply John but things have gotten worse, after 2 hours I unplugged my dream as nothing was happening, now I have no power going to it at all.

Is there a battery on the motherboard? if so could I take it off then put in on again and hope that allows action to be taken
