Question about Samsung Q1 Ultra Tablet PC

1 Answer

How do I disable AVStation on startup?

I've had the original Q1 for a couple of years. It has always started up in Windows. Today, I turned it on, and AVS booted. When I click the "X" to shut down AVS, I get a brief glimpse of "Windows Shutting down". So far, I've been able to find a way to get past AVS, which I don't want or need.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I feel really stupid.

For some reason, I had decided that the slider switch to turn on the computer slid to the left. No, that turns on the AVStation. I had always, for two years, slid the switch to the right, which turns on the computer.

Helps when you're not hit with a truly "senior moment". Or, at least, that's what I going to blame it on.

Have now corrected the direction of my switch sliding finger. As I say, I feel really, really stupid.

Thanks,

wr

Windows dead:how to reinstall it?


Press delete button during start up to enter its hardware configuration mode, set first boot device as CD ROM, second boot device Hard disc, and set all boot devices to none. Select save and exit option, press OK. Reboot the computer. Check whether it works fine or not. If not, O/S should be re-installed, and you can now put the O/S CD in it CD tray and follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure that the licence key [a 25 character key] is with you, otherwise, you can,t go beyond format option. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

The screen will not power on


If your Q1 won't turn on and the charging light just flickers, most likely you have inadvertently shifted the Hold slider button and your Q1 is on Hold. The Hold function prevents most functions on the Q1 from operating.
To get your Q1 to turn on, shift the Hold slider button so that Hold is turned off.


this button should be on the side of the device


let me know if you need further help

How to fix not working touchscreen? Do i have to replace it?


The Samsung Q1 is a hybrid, ultra-mobile, touch-screen device that is basically a very small tablet PC. It features a 7-inch screen, weighs a mere 1.7 lbs., features a Windows operating system, doesn't have a built-in keyboard, and comes in a variety of configurations. The Samsung Q1 doesn't offer outstanding battery life, but you can make some moves to boost your computing time.

Dim the Screen

Dim the screen brightness. Four programmable application-launch buttons occupy the right edge of the Q1. One of these, the menu button, calls up frequently-used controls, including screen brightness. Reduce the screen brightness as much as you can, as it's one of the best ways to extend battery life.
Close Power-hogging Apps

Close applications and browser windows when you're done with them. Too many open programs drain the battery. Beware power-hogging apps. Watching a video or listening to music on your Q1 drains your battery life much faster than just using Microsoft Word or checking email. Turn off the Wi-fi networking when not in use. The built-in Wi-fi searches for a network when you're not connected, which drains battery life.

Properly Caring for and Feeding a Battery

Unplug the Samsung Q1 after the battery is fully charged. Leaving your Q1 plugged in 24/7 leads to some discharge from the battery. Consider buying a bigger battery. A 3-cell battery comes with most configurations of the Q1, but you can also buy a 6-cell battery to double the battery life.

Room Temperature is Best

Don't expose the Q1 to harsh conditions. Keeping the device in a blazing hot car in direct sunlight harms your battery life. If you use your Q1 in conditions above 95 degrees Fahrenheit, you can permanently damage the battery. Cold conditions don't harm the battery in the same way, but if you leave the Q1 in the cold, let it warm to room temperature before you use it.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Yeah! You can. As far as I know, third party software Windows Login Recovery is used to reset forgotten windows password and the windows password reset file can be stored in a USB flash drive.

Touch Screen won't work on Windows


Is it running Windows TabletPC operating system? This version of the OS includes support for the touch screen.

There is also a known Microsoft problem that this might be related to. You can check out this link for more information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914444/en-us

BTW, Microsoft does not charge for calling to get a hotfix like the one listed in this article.
