Hello fellow victims,
I've been torturing myself to get my notebook from brick state to working state.
This is what i have encountered so far.
First i looked inside the notebook and found the following hardware.
Chips in the notebook from zenith. ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
motherboard = RoHS ZT-NT-670-V3.0_main
AK7802Q21605 = ARM926EJ-S 216 MHZ ARM processor with DSP en Memory management
CH374U = USB chip with 3 ports (backport = USB 2.0 sideports are 1.1)
DM9000AEP = Ethernet interface controller
M1102NL = ethernet 100Mb in/out module
Unknown chip on miniprint = Display/keyboard/touchpad ??
HY27UT088G2A = 8Gb NAND FLASH
NT5DS32M16CS-5T = 32Mbx16 SDRAM DDR 400
SWL-A20S = Atheros 6002 WiFi Chip
I tried a million times to reflash the notebook, but indeed, as described by atomico, the upload/download fails several seconds after messaging "init USB"
Offcourse i fiddled with all the settings in config.txt but nothing works!!!!
In that short time (after init usb and the error mesage) i hear my XP laptop making the sound that the usb device has been removed.
And then te trouble starts.
XP finds a "unknown device", and after telling my laptop that he has to use the M3USB drivers, he keeps telling me that he did not find any newer drivers. (and it stays unknown)
I tried to fool the laptop by changing USB ports ( 4 in total) and do the driver installation in different ways.
But all efforts fails.
It seems to be a problem in the USB chip/Driver on this motherboard.
Maybe someone could give me a hint ???
for example: fiddling in the register/inf-file of the driver.
i use the M3USB driver from CNM lifestyle
I am going to fiddle some more with the drivers, but that will be a painstaking experience.
I would be very greatfull if someone would share his experience with flashing his notebook ( even if it was a succes!)
greetings from the dutchman.
