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.
