Question about Samsung Q1 Tablet PC

1 Answer


The University I work for recently bought a Q1 Ultra to help with mobility for our skilled trades workers. Samsung's literature says the Q1 Ultra works with Windows XP. It came with VISTA. When I called SAMSUNG SUPPORT they informed me YES it will work by down grading to XP but they don't support it. The University will not allow and VISTA based computer access to their network due to security issues. Now does anyone know where I can get XP drivers for the ethernet controllers, SB Bus controller and the Video controllers of the Q1Ultra? Seems to me if a manufacurer claims it will work with a specific operating system they should support it. Thanks for your help, Wayne

    Funny thing is USA support knows nothing about this. It seems the Q1 ULTRA in the UK you have a choice of Operating Systems and in the USA you don't get a choice. They just shove VISTA down your throat. UK support site does have ALL the drivers and they work quite well.

    THANKS for the solution!!

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.

So I reinstalled the Windows XP. The change resolution button doesn't work, it just show you modes to choose and nothing else. I'm trying to change the resolution, but nothing happens. I can't even change...

XP is an obsolete operating systems. There is no support for it. Vista, Windows 7 and 8 have passed you by. You should be on Windows 10.

Resolution comes from your video card. You need the software and drivers for it if you can find it. Windows XP will only give you basic generic VGA Drivers.

I need to install an operating system on a Samsung q1 ultra

Suggest you use an external DVD drive, and put your installation disk in it. Then access the BIOS Setup utility.

In BIOS Setup, find the Boot Order menu. (Generally, along the top headings of the main menu, in BIOS Setup, or located in Advanced BIOS Settings) Set the first boot device to be CDROM. Be sure to Save your change.
This way the handheld, will boot from the installation disk, in your external DVD drive.

Should you be trying to downgrade from Vista to XP, you have to change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM. If not, Vista won't let you overwrite it.
Vista is an upgrade over XP.
