If the unit is under warranty send it in. If it is not under warranty you may want to tinker with it yourself. One problem be with the touch screen. I have seen this happen to units that get junk stuck in the corners of the screen. It wont boot or goes into a weird mode. Clear the junk out and the unit can properly boot up. When you dropped the unit it could of pinched the screen. Check for any pinching in the corners or damage to the top layer of the screen.

Does the unit go into mass storage mode when your unit is plugged into your computer? If it does this mean you can be missing some files in the main directory. Sometimes performing a firmware update will replace the missing files. If the unit will not go into mass storage mode you will not be able to perform this task.

The last thing to try is to open it up and see if anyflex cables came loose or if any visible solder connections are broke. Give it a sniff test too. If it smells like burned plastic you may have a issue at the component level.

Just hang on the android screen


Joyce,
Most Android devices come with the ability for recovery. Normally, you have to hold one of the volume buttons down while powering on the device(try them one at a time). If you get a screen that says something about download, try the other volume button.
Once the device has booted to the "special recovery" menu, you'll think you've went back in time, as you'll be presented with a quite archaic looking interface which is controlled, usually by one of the volume buttons to scroll through the options and the POWER button acts as an enter key. Be on the lookout for an option that says something about "restore factory settings" and go from there.
The boys over at XDA Developers are amazing at coding for these little devices, as they all use them every day and make them better, sometimes faster to use. If your device isn't under warrantee, I HIGHLY recommend "rooting" the device (unlocking and replacing it's ROM (OS) with a more efficient cooler one) and installing Clockwork Mod Recovery. This replaces the screen mentioned above with a pretty decent menu. Also, all the rage in rooting these days is TWRP, which adds an option of booting from one of multipe ROMs for whatever mood you happen to be in that day.
Good luck and happy recovery to your little bundle of Android joy!

Drops connection after connect, sends 2-3 pages


The fall-back required for transmission over VOIP is not available on this machine. It is a service mode function and can only be set by a technician. However, VOIP is so iffy for transmission that you may require fall-back to 4800 or even 2400. I have found that forcing fall-back more than 2 steps doesn't work.Also the Line equalisation can't be set as there is only 3 settings, 1.8;3.6; and 7.2 Km. Who knows how far to set VOIP, could be 3000KM. I had more success using a very old fax machine sending at 2400BPS that I could set the dip switches. Takes all sorts of changes to have success and then next time you try, it's changed again.

Acer Aspire 5100-5840 USB Problems


Is your laptop still under warranty? I would go to the manufacturer first if it is.
If not:
the system clock is run by the CMOS battery. When low will cause a host of problems. Change it and let me know if this fixes your problem.
