Question about Toshiba Portege M205-S810 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Cannot Start When I turn on the computer, it makes a beeping sound for 5 seconds. All the icons on the bottom of the screen light up and flash, and keep flashing. Anytime I type a key, a beep goes off. Otherwise the screen is black except for the icons on the bottom of the screen flashing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

How do I connect irulu usb keyboard to my Visual Land Prestige Elite 7q tablet?


Make sure the tablet and keyboard are charged.
On the tablet, go to setting - it looks like a gear icon. Open settings and about the 3rd item down from the top of the drop down menu, you will see "Bluetooth." Make sure it is set to "ON"

Then go to the keyboard. It also has an "ON" button and press the botton. A tiny red light will blink slowly close to the button. There is a second "Connect" that must also be pushed - it is the "Connect" button and it will search for the Bluetooth signal from the tablet.
When it finds te tablet signal, you will see a message on the tablet screen [it must e turned on} instructing you to enter a 5 or 6 digit code on the keyboard. When you enter the code, a "Connected" signal will show on the screen.

Open a document and start typing!

I'm pretty sure this pertains to all tablets and keyboards.

I cannot turn the voice function off of my proscan tablet modelPLT8088


I sounds like you are in screen reader mode. This function is for the visually impaired. Go to settings, click on accessibility tab and turn off screen reader or voice.

If it's not allowing you to select icons, and only talking:
1)You must select the item by clicking on it.
2) Secondly double tap the icon to open.

MY i pad will not charge


As soon as you connect your iPad to a working charger, it will beep. If you plug in the cable and you don't hear the beep, assume something is wrong. Just find out what, the cable or the charger.
Don't try to charge the iPad with a computer, because the 500 mA a USB connector from a computer can give, is not enough even to start.
But you can use a computer to test the cable, because the iPad should beep and say on the screen not charging.
If there is no beep when connecting to a computer, you have to use another cable. If it beeps, buy a new charger. 5 Volt 2 A. The best an Apple charger.

My kindle will not start up even though it has battery charge. Is there a soft reboot?


Yes:
  1. Get a watch with a hand for the seconds.
  2. Slide and hold the power switch for 7 seconds. After about 5 seconds the power light flashes three times. After 7 seconds, the screen will go blank and the device is switched off now. Release the switch.
  3. Slide and hold the power switch for 15 seconds (no more, no less). Do not hold the switch too long, the time window for the reset is not very big.
  4. After releasing the switch just wait. The Kindle will reboot after a few seconds.

PC powers up but does not boot up, nothing but a blank screen and the sound of the cooling fan.


The first step would be to make sure the computer is off, unplug any and all devices from the system, as well as the power cord, then flip the computer over, and remove the battery. With all devices and power sources removed, flip the computer back over, and hold the power button in the on position for approximately 20 seconds (this is what's called a "power reset"). After that has finished, plug only the power adapter into the computer (leave the battery unplugged) and attempt to turn the computer on this way. If this works, then it may be either the battery or one of the devices plugged into the computer that may be causing the problem. If this doesn't resolve it, then the other step that you can take is to try removing the RAM, Hard Drive and Wireless LAN cards inside each of the panels at the bottom of the unit (you will need to have a #0 or #1 philips screwdriver handy to remove the protective panels). Also make sure that you are in a clean environment when handling these parts by hand, as static electrivity can damage the parts and void your warranty, if you have one. Always make sure that you are grounding yourself somehow when handling these parts (usually touching a metal panel inside the computer will discharge any electricity in your body without damaging components, just don't touch an actual component). If you can remove all of the internal workings of the laptop, again, plug only the ac power in, and try turning on the computer. If it works, the computer should begin emitting long beeps, which denotes a "No RAM installed" error. If it doesn't resolve the issue and you don't hear long beeps, then you have a motherboard failure, and should seek the assistance of an authorized HP repair center (most likely through your place of purchase, or by calling HP directly at 1-800-HP INVENT). If you hear the long beeps though, insert one of your sticks of RAM, and again, turn the computer on with just the power adapter. If you see the HP splash logo on your screen, then chances are it's the other stick of RAM that has failed, and you will need to get it replaced. If it doesn't resolve the issue, then switch the sticks of RAM and try again. The idea here is to try and isolate the fault to a single part, and replace that one part. If you are not familiar or comfortable in removing these components, please seek the assistance of a certified technical specialist from one of your local computer stores.
