Question about Sylvania G-Netbook

1 Answer

I purchased a Sylvania Netbook (Smartbook/SYNET) and found an upgrade on the web which I attempted to install from the SD card, now all it does is show black screen saying SYLVANIA and a status bar that just runs across repeatedly and says "Loading Devices Drivers..." I'm sorry I even tried to update it, now I just want to fix the thing. Is there some way to reload WINCE6 using USB, copying from one working computer (this HP laptop) onto the netbook I have USB to USB cable, SD card, thumb drives etc. Can you solve this for me?

You have to follow specific instructions alluded to on www.digitalgadgets.com. If you fail to first unzip the download before writing to the SD card, then what you described will happen. Please see my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing

Synet07526 password


1) To reset your password on the Sylvania SYNET 07526, you could disconnect both the internal battery and the power supply for about 15-30 minutes to let the memory dissipate, letting the whole memory reset. You CAN THEN RE-ENTER A NEW PASSWORD BY GOING TO: My Computer>Control Panel>Owner>then enter a NEW PASSWORD.
2) If that doesn't help, download the new Operating System from "digitalgadgets.com" website onto your main computer and load the "Script" portion of that download onto an SD Card; then using that SD card, insert it into the SD port on the SYNET 07526 and let it load. Reboot the netbook and follow all usual operating procedures from there on. See my other solution for "setting baud rate". If you're simply going to use te netbook as a wi-fi device using a hotspot (via RT28701)- baud rate and passwords are UNNECESSARY settings. The challenge in getting this lil' stinker to work is worth the time. It's a LEARNING EXPERIENCE!

Sylvania 7" smartbook "synet7wid"


Go to this website. Download the "OS Update" zip file. You'll need to unzip it to a blank 1GB SD card (they say at least 1GB, but I used my 512 and it fit). Then you put the card in the slot UPSIDE DOWN WITH TABS FACING UP! Turn on the Netbook and the entire OS will self-install. Sometimes you need to do this more than once, apparently. Just remember, this is going to ERASE your entire netbook and do a clean install of the OS. The step by step instructions are also right on the page; here's the link:

Best of luck to you.

These Sylvania products have been giving people nothing but headaches since they were introduced last fall.
I suggest you take it back for a refund and buy an ASUS netbook instead.
