I accidently let my Arnova 8 g2 run out of battery. I came to charge it, and its stuck in a loop of flashing the arnova logo and then going black every 5 seconds.
I dont have the original charger and cant find a licensed replacement, anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? :evil:

Came here through Google. The solution is to press the RESET button (with a needle or something) so that the ARNOVA logo disappears. The red LED should remain on.

This way, it stops trying to boot and just sits tight in the Recovery mode which uses a lot less power (because screen is off). Leave it like that for 12 hours and you should have enough battery to boot normally.
