Question about Gateway M275 Tablet PC

Screen going nuts

My tablet top was already missing a screw, and my son turned the tablet top 360 degrees a few times. It must have twisted the wires or something, because now I can't do anything, the screen just zigzags. Any suggestions??

The connector is damaged. The connector was meant to only rotate 180 degrees and only in one direction. You are partially correct. The wires are twisted. Probably beyond repair. You could open up the laptop and the screen and look at the wiring and the connectors and see if they have just been dislodged from the connectors. Typically they are sliding connectors with film type wiring. You pull out on the connector to release the film. Otherwise, you are in for a rude repair bill.

How do I reset an Orbo Jr. 4GB Android 4.1 five multi touch tablet?


After a lot of searching, I found some information for you;

You can attempt to do a "hard reset" on the tablet. Some models have this feature while others do not. In order to do a hard reset, hold down the volume up button along with the power button until the Orbo Jr turns on. Once it starts to power up, you should see a menu in the top-left corner of it with an option called "factory reset kernel." Use your volume down button to select it and the screen brightness should restore. Hope this helps you get it back up and running!


and this


The easiest way to unlock the Orbo Jr if you have already downloaded things from the Google Play store is to input the wrong pattern 5 times in a row. If the system is fully updated, you should see "forgot password" on the screen. Hit that and put in your google email and password and it will unlock the tablet allowing you to put in a new pattern. Hope this helps ya out!

Nexus 7 tablet not charging


Had the same issue just two months after buying mine last year. It must be a very common fault with these tablets. I think you may just be covered for one year, but go back to where you bought it and they can either send it away to be repaired or fix it instore. It is something to do with the charging connector inside the tablet being loose. Since it is not a big 'repair' to fix, they surely should do it free of charge.
My son-in-law, who knows these kinds of things, says that it can be repaired easily be anyone who can open the tablet corrrectly.
Good luck!

Tablet screen is white


Check with the manufacturer or wherever you bought it. Sometimes they will fix it free, but you have to go through a few hoops, like filling out some paperwork and sending the unit back to the company. The downside, is that if they think it is damaged, instead of a defect, they could charge you. But if there is a warranty, then I would think the could fix for free. It all depends on the manufacturer. I has an ASUS table that the screen got cracked. After doing some research on the tablet, I found that some of the tablet had a defect on the way the screen was manufactured that would make it crack easier or for no reason. So do a little homework and see if there are any customer complaints about the product.

The problem could be a damage to the MB by excessive heat produced by Nvidia GPU. The only way to fix this permanently is to take out the MB and reflow the GPU with heat. You can find a video on youtube how to do it. You must take out the piece of gel between GPU and cooling unit and replace it with copper bar or penny made prior 1983 - still made out of copper. Also clean the fan. Use heat transfer paste like arctic cool - not a glue, on both sides of the penny. Install win7. Win7 does not use the coprocessor and will help to ran the notebook cooler. Install speedFan 4.40 - free utility to see what the temp is of your GPU and CPU. If you did good job it will stay around 55C. If your HP notebook is still running check the temp. If the GPU is running 80C or more it will melt the connections on the MB and quit working sooner or later.

Dissplay not working


I had the same problem on one that I bought, that was used. You have to take out all of the little grey plugs and remove the screws underneath them. My cables were all fine. I had a connection inside the monitor area, near the top. There is a ribbon cable with a flat, wide plug on it. I had to uncompress the sides of the plug & jack. It cured the problem. About 4 months after I had it working, I found out the previous owner used to pick it up by the screen.
