Try the "hardware reset" (see FAQ). Maybe you have luck... ;-)

Possibly it's a broken motherboard or graphics card. Probably not easy to fix...

I've had the same issues when I received my Amilo.

Replaced the CMOS battery, and everything works fine.

Installed SuSE 10.2 on it, and it works like a charm.

Hi Chris

Sorry about the late replies.

1. If you turn the laptop upside down, and remove the three screws on the one plate and slide it back and upwards, you'll see the CMOS battery. It is a small, silver round disc. The main battery is the big, square, grey thing.

2. For SuSE Linux 10.2 go here.

Also, in this thread I posted instructions on how to completely remove the bottom cover - this will assist you in replacing the CMOS battery. (But, you do that at your own risk... ;) )

Regards
