    hi! I'm having the same problem. I left my computer while doing a normal virus scan...hours later I found the computer in what appeared to be hibernation mode. I've not been able to do anything with it since. It flashes that the battery is working or when I have the power cord plugged in....but I can't turn it on. Help! thanks!

    Power lights come on onIy when plugged in but does not boot up, or attempt to power up after I opened up the screen because my hinge is broken an cracking open the screen. It seems like the battery is charging but wont power on at all.

I dropped my tablet and now everything is backwards words,screen,everything help


Hello! you might need to calibrate your tablet`s sensor, if that doesn`t work please turn off the auto rotation on your tablet, and then reboot your tablet. if that doesn`t work, please do a factory reset on your tablet by pressing power button + volume down, your tablet will go into recovery mode and look for factory reset.

Blank Screen


The bad thing about this is that it could be a software related issue or a hardware issue. If you're willing, you can disassemble the unit and check for a damaged or loose connector to the monitor. If there doesn't appear to be any issues there it may well be that the screen has gone bad or there is something wrong with the driver/setting on the unit itself that is causing the screen to saty off. I'd move forward with the hardware issue first though.

Screen wont come on


Hi Rita

I would recommend for you to turn the iPad off completely and restart it. To do this you push the power button in the top right until "hopefully the red "swipe to turn off button" appears. If this does not happen we will have to perform a hard reset and the way to do this is to push the power button and the home button at the same time for about 10 seconds. The iPad may restart automatically however if it does now now you can push the power button in the top right and the Apple Logo should appear at the center of the screen.

Now your iPad should start up freshly and come back to life, unless there isn't a further problem.

Ipad has usb chord and itunes logo/ wont start


If the iPad is frozen and can't be restarted the normal way,press and hold the sleep/wake button and the home button together for at least 10 seconds.The red slider may appear and the screen may dim but don't release the 2 buttons until the apple logo appears.If this doesn't work,you will need to backup and restore the iPad.Upgrade to latest version of iTunes,then connect to computer and select it when it appears under devices.If you haven't done a sync do so now.Click summary tab and then restore.If you haven't done a backup you will be prompted to do so.This will backup all settings on iPad..Next click restore and if you have completed all steps,wait until iPad completes the restore and returns to home screen.

When turning n the cruz tablet, the word cruz pops up and goes away. then cruz flashes


First don't worry too much you're just stuck in a loop or have bad firmware (most likely). The fix is probably going to be easy but you have to do some things. Just follow the directions I give and that Velocity gives and you should have no problems in about half an hour.
Take out the top SD card. Put in in your computer or an adapter that goes to the computer.
Go to the cruz website and download the current firmware (http://cruzsupport.velocitymicro.com/ics/support/KBAnswer.asp?questionID=814).
Even if you have updated the ROM something could have happened and it could be corrupted so replace it. Put that firmware on your sd card. Do not extract the zip file. Do not change its name. If the name changed (like if it has (01) at the end) delete the old file you downloaded and change the new one back to the old name.
Eject your sd card when you finish and put it in your tablet.
Press the top power button and the up volume button at the same time. Continue holding. You will see cruz but dont stop.. it'll flash kinda and it'll still say cruz.. keep effin' holdin'...
the robot shows up: you win! let go relax give it some time to freshen up. Have a cup of coffee and let it finish. Everything will be tidy and new when it's done.
the robot doesn't show up and the same thing that's been happening happens again: try pressing reset when it turns on (paper clip in that hole youll feel a button when you get it right). Keep pressing it the whole time it has power to try and get a hard reset. Do it like 2 or 3 starts and fails just for good measure.
then try to flash again (power and volume up).
if that doesn't work pull the back, unplug the battery and wait 30 seconds to a minute. plug it back in and try flashing the first time you start up. like don't press power hoping its going to turn on now. It won't. You have given it a clear quick access memory which may let you get to the point where you can flash without failing.
IMPORTANT: On the first time after the battery is plugged in hold power and up volume together and keep holding. This is important. If you press power it will recurrupt the RAM and you made the back lose and unplugged the battery for nothing.
If that doesn't work.. well it should. You're stuck in a loop that you should be able to pull out of. Go back the the beginning and make sure you have the new file you downloaded and the name is correct (its on the cruz support website).
If that's all done properly try the battery thing one more time. If it's still failing don't give up.. give it hell. I was stuck in a bad one going strait to white screen only being able to shut it off by pulling the battery and I was able to get it to flash (took about 30 tries). For the trying at this point you don't have to pull the battery just keep starting it with power and volume up pressed.
As long as you're not staring at a black screen you should be able to fix this.
Good-luck!

My toshiba r15-s822 says it has no drive and gives a (Ide#0 ERROR) i had a virus and i formated the drive a while back and i got a new windows xp install but i cant seem to load it cause it wont show the...


Xp can only "See" a hard drive up to about 128GB, if its bigger than that, XP won't install.

Make sure your drive is properly connected, and jumper in the right place (1 drive, set to master)
If it used to work before your problem, should be ok.

Then boot from your windows disk. If your bios is set to boot from the hard drive, if there's no operating system on your hard drive it can't boot.

If its set to boot from the hard drive first, it may, after a few seconds revert to booting from the disk drive. If not, while booting watch the screen, at the bottom it you should see "Press F2 for setup or F10 for boot options" or something similar. To temporarily change the settings, choose the boot options menu and select "Boot from CD". Restart and you should be on your way.

If that doesn't work, you may need a new hard drive.

How to fix not working touchscreen? Do i have to replace it?


The Samsung Q1 is a hybrid, ultra-mobile, touch-screen device that is basically a very small tablet PC. It features a 7-inch screen, weighs a mere 1.7 lbs., features a Windows operating system, doesn't have a built-in keyboard, and comes in a variety of configurations. The Samsung Q1 doesn't offer outstanding battery life, but you can make some moves to boost your computing time.

Dim the Screen

Dim the screen brightness. Four programmable application-launch buttons occupy the right edge of the Q1. One of these, the menu button, calls up frequently-used controls, including screen brightness. Reduce the screen brightness as much as you can, as it's one of the best ways to extend battery life.
Close Power-hogging Apps

Close applications and browser windows when you're done with them. Too many open programs drain the battery. Beware power-hogging apps. Watching a video or listening to music on your Q1 drains your battery life much faster than just using Microsoft Word or checking email. Turn off the Wi-fi networking when not in use. The built-in Wi-fi searches for a network when you're not connected, which drains battery life.

Properly Caring for and Feeding a Battery

Unplug the Samsung Q1 after the battery is fully charged. Leaving your Q1 plugged in 24/7 leads to some discharge from the battery. Consider buying a bigger battery. A 3-cell battery comes with most configurations of the Q1, but you can also buy a 6-cell battery to double the battery life.

Room Temperature is Best

Don't expose the Q1 to harsh conditions. Keeping the device in a blazing hot car in direct sunlight harms your battery life. If you use your Q1 in conditions above 95 degrees Fahrenheit, you can permanently damage the battery. Cold conditions don't harm the battery in the same way, but if you leave the Q1 in the cold, let it warm to room temperature before you use it.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I have a Toshiba R15 S822, my problem is that my touch screen is not working, I would like to know how do I reset my computer to factory setting?


I might not be necessary to reset to factory settings. Just go to the Toshiba.us support site and download the drivers for the Tablet PC (that includes the WAcom driver, all the tablet PC extensions).
If you have the Recovery CD, you can run it from inside Windows XP and reinstall selectively all you need.
Just to set things straight, the screen of the R15 reacts to the Wacom pen only, not to your finger or some other plastic tipped pen.

R15-S822 turning it to a tablet mode puts the computer in standby


the only thing i can think of its not reading you are turning the screen possibly because the technician didnt do something right, one solution may be to set the action when u close your laptop to not do anything. to do this , go to your start menu/ control panel/ performance and maintenance/ and then power options. On the menu that pops up, select the "Advanced" tab on the top and select, "Do Nothing" in the drop down menu for "when I close the lid....."
