Re: My Raspberry Pi is dead

that sounds like corruption to me. i would pop it in another computer, pull off anything i wanted to save and re-image the sd card. Doubtful. At least in my experience. I can't think of anything in software that would cause what the OP is reporting. Except, maybe, an X server running without a wind...

My Raspberry Pi is dead

My Raspberry Pi is dead. I am not sure exactly what happened but I guess while inserting the the HDMI cable I used too much force that resulted in a hairline crack in the Pi's mainboard. I don't have the cash right now to buy a new Pi. I can't explain how disappointed I am by this. Just wanted to ve...

Re: Interference affecting RPi display

Yes its the Pi with a weak power supply. It seems like you have just answered your own question. Get a better PSU. Preferably the official RPF power supply. I'll go out on a limb here and also guess that you aren't using a good surge protector. Get one of those as well (one with line filtering - I ...

I use Midori too but CPU usage stays high most of the time dunno why.

The following worked

But it takes a long time to start the video.
