Diagnosis

If you have a broken XO laptop and need to figure out what the problem is, start here.

  • If your laptop doesn't provide you with the Sugar interface, or if you think the problem is with the physical machine rather than the software, you are looking for XO Troubleshooting Guide (Hardware Problem Diagnosis).
  • If the problem occurs when Sugar or an Activity is running, or you think the problem is in software, there is currently a lack of documentation, other than the Wifi Troubleshooting Guide. You might also want to check the XO Troubleshooting Guide.


Support

Give1Get1 owners can find in-warranty and post-warranty support options on the Give1Get1 Support Page.

A number of volunteer-run support efforts are available:

The most commonly done and easiest disassembly-based repairs can be found in Simple repairs.
