Question about HP DG937A - HP Tablet PC TC1100 Tethered Pen (DG937ATABLETPEN)
SOURCE: hp tc1100 memory location
If you flip your laptop over, make sure all power is turned off and the battery is out, Now look at underside of machine there should be one or two screws in a square cover, Just remove the screw or screws and take cover off, Now the modules are held in by two white or black tabs on either sides of the sticks, Just push the two lock down clips and the module should pop up, Pull straight back out and remove. Now when u are replacing with the new ones make sure they are the same speed. and better yet make sure its a matched set, and put back in the same way as they came out in reverse order. Make sure when you push them back into there slots that they are snugg and firm into place, Put battery back in hook power up and reboot you Hp. It should tell you there has been a memory change and ask you to push enter or any key to except and you are on your way to more memory, Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays To You And Your Family

SOURCE: Tablet Keyboard not working
You may have a damaged (Physical) connection. If you know of someone with a tc1000 or tc1100 keyboard, try a swap to rule this in or out. The keyboards are interchangeable. I have several of both and have done this all the time.
Someone trying to "help you" close your "Laptop" could have damaged the connector at the Main board by trying to fold the tablet screen down like a laptop.
Might be a good time to clear static and reformat too. Cures a world of ills, just takes time.
Pull the battery, Pull the AC power, hold the power switch on for 30 to 40 seconds, and release.
Back up all your good data.
Try a restore, just for grins.
If no go, then do a complete reinstall of the factory image. You will need a USB keyboard, a dock with a cd drive or a USB CD drive, Restore discs (cheap from HP if yours are gone missing) and some time.
Install disc 1, follow the prompts through disc 2 and 3.
Follow on screen windows setup stuff when XP starts.
Go to "start", "all programs", "software set up" and install all the software they offer you.
Go to http://free-virus-removal.org/AVG/index.asp?=2376 and download some free antivirus for now.
Shut down the PC
Try your keyboard.
Either way you will need to go to "windows update" from tools menu in Internet explorer and install updates, service pack 2, etc.
Best of luck, I really enjoy my tc1000 and my tc1100. Wouldn't know what to do without them. I put a 120GB drive in my tc1000 then later moved it to the 1100 (must reformat) and keep many shrunken movies, Office 2007, and lots of tunes on it. I put the 40GB from the 1100 into the 1000 (must reformat- operating system differences) and all is well. I've been into 5 tc1000s and they all worked when I was done, so let me know if you need more help.
I hope this isn't too late.

SOURCE: TC1100 does not turn on!
Check the wall outlet to be sure it is providing power. Use a lamp or a fan or other electrical device to be sure that outlet provides power. Check the power surge supression strip, and ensure it is switched on if it has a switch, and it it has a fuse reset button, push that in or push it to the reset position. Recheck the connection of the wall connector cable to the small DC converter box. Finally recheck the connection of the end of the power cable where it connects to the PC. If the Tablet still does not show a green light indicator on the front, try removing the battery. The TC1100 works with the battery completely removed. If you have power but no display, then the problem could be with the display. I suggest that since there are a lot of problems with the older tablet PCs, that if you still have problems with it and do not really need that type, check out the new low priced Atom processor netbooks and the new moderately priced Intel Core2 Duo notebook PCs and AMD dual core and tri-core notebook PCs, with plenty of RAM like 2GB or more, and preferably dedicated video RAM, like an NVideo or ATI video that provides 64MB or 128MB or 256 MB or 512MB or more of dedicated video memory. Back to your TC, ensure it has good power, then look to possible bigger issues that power or power adapter - the CPU or board could be bad, or it may boot up but not display because of a problem with video on board or in the connector to the screen or in the screen circuitry.

Replacement recovery disks can be requested/ordered thru HP.com, customer support area. If your laptop is under warranty, you might get them for free or cheap. Just get in touch with them, and have your model number and serial number of your HP ready to give to them
