A strange thing happend, when I tried to pair my wireless keyboard. The mini ran now normally for days, but when I wanted to pair the keyboard, it froze.

I tried to restart, pair, but it's always freezing.

So now I removed the bluetooth board, and still that it's running fine. I left it for about 30 minutes off, and when I turn it on, it starts for the first try.

Now I left it again turned off.

So maybe a bad bluetooth board caused the problem? Otherwise it works, it found my BT devices.

Still confused

Hmmm… are you saying that you were having the problem with a bluetooth keyboard as your keyboard, but then you substituted a "wired" keyboard (USB) and the problem went away? Your post wasn't clear.

Do you have a WIRED USB keyboard you can use as a substitute?

How do things work if you leave the wired keyboard attached?

I removed the bluetooth board, not just the keyboard! So yes, now I have a wired keyboard attached.

I thought you already tried (removing) everything before, hope for you it's just that board.

Erm, yes you did:

When you say "bluetooth board", what specifically are you referring to?

Do you mean the bluetooth card -inside- the Mini?
