Check the wall outlet to be sure it is providing power. Use a lamp or a fan or other electrical device to be sure that outlet provides power. Check the power surge supression strip, and ensure it is switched on if it has a switch, and it it has a fuse reset button, push that in or push it to the reset position. Recheck the connection of the wall connector cable to the small DC converter box. Finally recheck the connection of the end of the power cable where it connects to the PC. If the Tablet still does not show a green light indicator on the front, try removing the battery. The TC1100 works with the battery completely removed. If you have power but no display, then the problem could be with the display. I suggest that since there are a lot of problems with the older tablet PCs, that if you still have problems with it and do not really need that type, check out the new low priced Atom processor netbooks and the new moderately priced Intel Core2 Duo notebook PCs and AMD dual core and tri-core notebook PCs, with plenty of RAM like 2GB or more, and preferably dedicated video RAM, like an NVideo or ATI video that provides 64MB or 128MB or 256 MB or 512MB or more of dedicated video memory. Back to your TC, ensure it has good power, then look to possible bigger issues that power or power adapter - the CPU or board could be bad, or it may boot up but not display because of a problem with video on board or in the connector to the screen or in the screen circuitry.

Reset xp admin password

boot into Safe Mode. To do this, press F8 while your computer is booting. Once in safe mode, you can try going into the control panel and reset your password. If you can't, you can try and open up a Command Prompt by opening Run and typing cmd. Enter net user [username] [enternewpassword]. For example, If I want to change my account which is Jack to password abcde, I would type in net user jack abcde and press enter. Your password should now be changed.

Key board of my laptop does not work. model lat d630.

if none of the keys respond and this just recently started, try turning off the laptop, then take out the battery and AC adapter. Hold the power button for about 10 seconds which discharges any power left. Connect the battery and AC adapter, restart the computer in Safe Mode and test the keyboard. If it does not work, try going to the Device Manager and uninstall the existing driver for the keyboard and let the OS detect it again. If this does not work, Dell has a utility to run a diagnostics on its component like the keyboard. You can look for a Utilities CD that came with your laptop and boot from it, then run the Customize Test option and look for the keyboard test. This will help you check if the keyboard is worklng.

Cursor keeps jumping back in text when typing. This results in over typing things already typed. Not sure if this is me or a problem with my new laptop ?


This is either caused by a remaining flea power on the laptop.

Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

open a notepad, or any microsoft office and check if the cursor keeps jumping. If yes, try updating the touchpad driver / BIOS update.

Hope this helps.

Keyboard sometime doesn't response my hit

What?  No, that's pretty whacked.  Does it happen in all OS, even if you boot to a LiveCD?  I think your OS has a wacky driver or IME loaded for it, but it could be an unplugged (or bad USB connection) thing all right.  Get in there and confirm your connections are solid, and check your IME (input method filter, e.g. for typing in Thai.)
