    Hi Sylvia Grubb, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? What type of tablet are you having problems with, and what software version is loaded on it. I had a similar problem that I solved with my Nexus 7.

Hi,

Either your laptop had gone to sleep or hibernate mode. You can set the timers under Power Options on the Control Panel for the laptop to go on sleep mode or hibernate mode if idle for span of time.

You can wake up the laptop by touching the touchpad, pressing a key or pressing the power button.

However, if above options will not work, the only option for you is to press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds to completely turn off the unit. Try to power on the computer if it will boot up okay.

***ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR CASE TO CASE BASIS**

If you still get black screen, remove the battery and the ac adapter (charger) then press the power button for at least 20 seconds to discharge power in the motherboard. You can now reinsert the battery and power on the system normally.

***NOTE: If the computer will not boot up, the LCD or the motherboard might have failed.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my archos 28 internet tablet wont turn on... the light comes on and then it goes off after like 7 seconds

LOL, you're up the creek. Never buy a computer that does not have a CD Drive on it because that is what you need now.
May the AC Adapter Power Cord is bad. Some of them have a indicator light on them when you plug them in the wall. Does yours have a light on it and does it light up?
When you plug the power cord in the tablet do you see any lights?

SOURCE: my tablet is not powering on..it is getting charge

Two most probable problems:
-bad battery
-bad motherboard

If it's still under warranty, get it repaired.
If not, buy a new one

Cannot log in or turn off tablet to reboot. Touch screen not working.


You should be able to press and hold the power on switch for several seconds and get the tablet to shut down. If it won't shut down with the power switch, leave it on until it shuts off due to low battery and then recharge and try rebooting the device. If it won't reboot after that, check your manual for the factory reset process. See if you can contact customer support for your unit and get the process for re-flashing the bios from them. That usually requires loading a specific set of files onto the external memory SD card and holding down a switch when restarting the tablet. All files and downloaded apps will be erased if you have to go that way.

Unable to touch part of my screen: Coby Kyros Tablet


you can try to master reset it, but it seems physical dmg and it would have to be repaired/replaced.
Turn the tablet all the way off, press and hold the VOL - and power at the same time for 8 to 9 seconds, it will show a green android guy with a system recovery menu. Use vol - to go down to Wipe Data/Factory Reset, press the power button to select it, go down to 'yes' to confirm, press the power button to select it, it will wipe the tablet, you then press the power button on 'reboot system'.
