TC1000 Stopped working

My tc1000 was running fine, I enabled the wireless, and the tablet shutdown. I get power from the usb port for mouse and other devices, battery is charged, I even plugged into power outlet, not a peep! I engage the power switch, no sound, no nothing. weird!

I need to reset the bios on my Compaq TC1000. I tried removing the RTC battery and replacing as HP suggested but that didn't work, They then suggested I need to flash my bios. I cant find instructions for...

To flash the BIOS you need to download the BIOS from a link which HP provides.. so contact them and tell them to provide you with the BIOS link..
You need to download the BIOS and install it..
However after removing the RTC battery I would suggest you to hold the notebook power button for 20 secs..
This should remove all the residua power..
I think it will remove the BIOS password...
If it does not work then you could flash the BIOS..

Cannot upgrade TC1000 to XP SP3 no error codes given, win upd not working also tried standalone upgr no luck

I'm not sure what your abbreviations mean but the only time I've had a problem with SP3 was down to a poor internet connection and lack of virtual memory on an old machine.

I was able to reset the virtual memory by using the Help files on the PC.

To over come the poor internet connection, I downloaded SP3 and saved it to a USB flash drive.

That way I was able to install having stopped all running processes.

Battery won't charge

Find a computer/electronics tech to solder the leads to the jack back on. I had to do that too. You just need to be careful if you, or they take it apart b/c the cable and leads are very delicate. I got it working and thought I missed something only to rip the video card out and need to buy a new motherboard on ebay, which is another idea for ya.

Compaq PC Tablet 1000

I do not know if this will help your situation any or not. I just posted this in another thread. I purchased a used TC1000 for $35 (I just couldn't help myself, despite what the owner stated was happening).

It would power on, but no Compaq POST.

Toshiba taught me a simple trick when I was having issues with my X205 gaming laptop. Basically, remove all power sources (including battery). Hold the power slider to the on position for 25 - 30 seconds. Then power back up. You have to discharge whatever electricity is in the board/ps otherwise I believe the MoBo senses additional charge/not enough charge and refuses to boot.

I did this and have had 25 successful boots in a row.

Does the keyboard mouse still work? If not you most likely have the same problem many other users have had, it is with the USB 2.0 not the keyboard and there is a fix for it. Go to this page and download the "enhancement"

Let me know if this is what was wrong, if not I have some other thoughts.
