Question about Gigabyte Atom Series Netbook: Q2005 - Intel« AtomO N570 1.6 Netbook

1 Answer

Netbook turns off instantly when power cord plugged in - even when not plugged into power outlet!

My sisters Netbook is currently turning itself off as soon as the power adapter is plugged into it. She can boot it up without the cord plugged in as there is still some battery life left, but as soon as the adapter even slightly touches the power port on the netbook (not even actually plugged into it..!) it powers itself completely off, total shutdown. I even tried it with the adapter not plugged into the power socket and same thing happened... Any ideas what could be wrong? Cheers!

Okay my sister had her tablet she turned it on and it froze at the go screen. So I pushed and held down. The power button and it turned off, and then I don't know why I pressed the reset button but it...


Do a factory reset. Remove all power including internal battery. Let the unit discharge completely. Plug into external power supply and try to start up. If it starts. shut down, put the external cord out , replace internal battery, and recharge for an hour. Now try a strat from the internal batter. If it fails, that s the problem.

I have a filla tablet and it will not com on help please


I suppose this is some cheap android tablet. If the power button does not turn the tablet on, try plugging in different chargers and cables. Perhaps the battery is not charged. If the tablet has been dead for awhile it might take awhile to charge the device up enough to turn the screen on. So, try cleaning the charge connector with some alcohol and check it for damage and allow port to dry before plugging in any power. Just experiment by moving the power cord around and perhaps the connector is loose pr something. I suggest leaving the cord plugged in even for days or hours because it can take different devices a long time to charge if they are flat.

How can I get the samsung tab to turn on


I'm assuming this is a new device for you. Do/did you see the battery charging icon in the middle of the screen when you plugged it in? If so, great. If not you are having a problem charging your tablet. Most likely either a bad cord, a cord that's pulled out a bit on either end, or an outlet that's turned off or not working.

If the icon was present and indicates a full charge, then simply press and hold the power button for a few seconds and the screen should start right up.

If it worked for you in the past, check your power cord. I've gone thru 3 on mine.

What do i do if my tablet wont charge


Lol Deer Hunter 2014, Oh my!
Anyways, try another power cord and also try it in another power outlet
If you leave it plugged in for a few hours, does the tablet itself feel hot or warm? Does the plug itself feel hot or warm?
You may need to find someone else who uses the same type of charger or bring your tablet to a pc repair store to see if they have a charger to try it out.

My tablet iconia wont start


There should be a tiny reset button or pinhole (use a straightened out paper clip). If reset button/hole itself does not work, try pressing it while holding down the power button at same time. Otherwise, it sounds like you have a battery/charging issue (try another charger cord if available).

No power


Pull the SD card from the top and make sure you have the appropriate update from the cruz website on it. Follow flash instructions.
Test the power cord with a voltmeter to see if its giving power. ****** works well too. Not really don't do that, I mean it'll work but get a tool to check it. Someone who works on cars or their house will probably have one.
If that doesn't work, open the back, pull the battery plug and then plug it back in. If it still doesn't turn on you're probably beat. You can look further into digging in and removing other internal parts to attempt to reset whatever it is that is wrong but most likely it's an issue along the power line on the way in or the jack itself. If it had a surge it'll be something further that is fried. In most cases you're buying a new one.
Keep an eye out for the t301 its much more capable and prices drop to about $70 during sales. The touch screen is real (capacative) which is a major improvement and you have a lot more space to download stuff.
goodluck

Toshiba without battery


1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.

2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.

3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.
