I purchased secondhand a viewsonic pentium 3, 1100 and other than when the seller booted up the system and the second booting when i got home, (both sucessful booting), I have been unable to get the tablet part of the pc to light up the screen. The seller said I may need a battery that i could purchase on line for approximately $60.00, and when I power up the tablet the green power light illuminates and then the red battery indicator illuminates aswell, sometimes flashing. However there is an other source powering the tablet aswell and that is the ac adapter. Do i need a battery that works to power up this thing? Please help. Lost in AZ. _ Dana

check lights then if red light still on after one hour plugged in then you need new battery.try this if two green lights only on after, you do not need battery.

Is this a windows tablet? If so, I imagine that you are running Windows 8. Point your cursor to the bottom right of the screen and click on the "Search" icon. In the text box, enter "System Restore".
If you are trying to format the tablet, you could place the unit in a docking station and boot the device through a USB image of the operating system. You can find loads of information on how to accomplish this through the Microsoft website.

Most laptops cannot boot up from a USB device/hard drive. Check the BIOS configuration to see if the USB is available in the boot order devices. In this case the USB driver is not available for use until Windows is installed. If the USB is not available in the BIOS Boot order then you need to reinstall Windows using the installation CD in the CD drive..
Unfortunately, as far as I know, there is no "Replacement" part for this. It will have to be fixed by the Manufacturer. It isn't a "Part" per-say, but a circuit on the motherboard itself. If it is no longer working, then it is a hardware issue, and since it is a "Laptop" style computer, there is no way to simply fix it.
In some Motion LE1600 tablet pcs, the AC adapter port becomes separated from the motherboard. It will charge in the convertible keyboard or docking station because the power comes from the USB connection (for the kb) or the dock connector (for the FlexDock). Motion used to fix this by repairing the solder joint but now they just replace the motherboard (very expensive). There are ways to solder this but the repair doesn't always last unless you have someone really good do it.
