I work with a middle school that issues netbooks out to their students. One of the problems that keeps coming up is when the netbook is turned on it only has a blinking cursor after Bios. We have a image that we use rather than installing all of our software on these devices so I have imaged the devices. After I image them they work fine however, they came back in about a week with the same issue. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions?
