Re: My Tablet PCT4010 Seems dead after forced power...
I had the same thing happen on my T4010D. The circuit to the power supply is foobar'd. I took apart my machine and then put it back together without changing anything and it fixed the problem temporarily. That worked successfully twice, which was long enough to get most of my files off of the machine. I ended up just buying a new laptop.

Get an Android Tablet out of safe mode
Use the following steps to get out of safe mode.
1.Restart your device by holding the power button, then tap Power off.
2.Tap Ok to confirm.
3.Power the device on. Your tablet should now be out of safe mode. If the device is still in safe mode use one of the following methods.
·Uninstall the last application you installed:
1.From the Apps menu, tap on Settings.
2.Tap on the app and then tap on uninstall.

1.From the Apps menu, tap on settings, and then tap backup and reset.
2.Tap on factory data reset, and then tap reset tablet
3.Tap erase everything to format your tablet back to factory default configuration.
First you must know what format your tablet can play. Not all MP4 formats are the same. Perhaps you even have to install a video player app.Then you have to convert all content to the format your tablet can play, and then you can copy it to the tablet, using a cable, or an SD card. (if your tablet has a slot for that)
press power and volume up once the dead android appears. Then install adb driver for windows and plug your tablet to an usb port of your pc. Next find Livesuite for flashing allwinner A13 tablet with a new rom. It doesn't work for me, but still working for many people on web...
If your ARCHOS does not respond correctly or does not start properly, you can try to remedy this situation with a system recovery. Be very careful with this as there are options to erase all the data on your device.
To enter into the Recovery screen
- Turn off the device and wait 10 seconds. - Press and hold the volume + button while powering on the device. - Keep the volume + pressed until the Recovery mode starts (white screen). - To move from one option to another, use the volume buttons. To select an option, press the ON/OFF button.
Recovery mode options
No: Cancels the system recovery. Update firmware: Allows you to connect your device to a computer in order to copy the latest .AOS file (operating system) to your device and then install it. Repair System: Attempts to repair the file structure on the internal memory. This does not erase any data. No: Return to main recovery screen. Force Touchscreen Calibration: Select this and then select no to leave the recovery screen. Upon restarting, the ARCHOS will immediately start the touch-screen calibration utility. Check Disk: Check and repair the system partition if damaged. Start USB MSC: Allows you to connect your device to a PC to access the internal memory. Format System: Formats the internal memory. All data (music, photos, videos, etc.), applications and settings are erased. "
Power off by holding the power button for 10 seconds.
Press "Volume +" button and power it on (press power button to
start while holding "volume +" until the tablet displays recovery mode. Select the "Format System" option.
Power your Archos 101 off by holding the Power Button for 10 seconds (this fully shuts it down).
While holding the Volume + button power it back up (tap power button to start up, hold volume until the tablet enters recovery mode, you'll see a series of choices instead of the demo mode).
Choose the Format System option.
When this process is complete make sure not to select Demo Mode as Android boots and the Archos 101 gets up and running.
Maybe IBM have some drivers but as XP is obsolete, they may not.
Operating Systems as supplied from new. Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005
Are you using XP Tablet Edition as that edition has the drivers for the features?
It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.
Try running chckdsk.exe
If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD
First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)
restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual
