Question about IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC

Battery light stays on even after comp is turned off or the battery charger is unplugged

1. I try to turn on my computer after it goes into Stand By mode but it doesn't. The screen is off but there are 3 lights flashing to show its on. Its like only part of the computer is responding. 2. And then recently, I noticed that the battery light is still on when I unplug it and my computer is turned off or is in Stand By mode and the worst is the light is still on when the computer is off. Its not like its slow at responding and turns off the light later on, it stays on. I take the battery out and the computer is really hot even though its been off for an hour. 3. I've been getting a lot of those "blue screens" saying it can't reboot properly and it restarts but it doesn't progress. I just reimaged my computer and it just gave me the "blue screen" when I tried to use my computer. Is this an internal problem? Is it because I've been using an older battery charger at times? I checked the output voltages and they are the same. The new one is just lighter and smaller...

Will not charge. Plug it in green charge light goes on, screen flashes battery low, screen shuts off green light goes out


Try resetting your Kindle. Turn off first then hold power button down for about fifteen seconds and it does a reset. This should correct the problem. Make sure you have a charger made for Kindle and not a generic one.

Wi-fi not obtaining IP address and if turn off wi-fi can not get to turn back on


Assuming you're trying to connect via wireless router. If you connect, but then aren't able to get to the Internet. I would something is wrong between the router to the modem to the wall (DSL/Cable modem) rather then your tablet device. You can connect your device to your router and you device will show it has a wifi connection, but beyond the router something may be amiss. Try seeing what you get from another device like computer or laptop. That might get you closer to your actual issue,

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!

This sounds similar to something that happened when I tried rooting my android phone. If it's the same thing, that means you will need to go to recovery mode and install an update.zip package that you can find somewhere online for it. It's because the code for what's supposed to happen after that screen is overwritten and it doesn't know where to go.

Your husband switched the device off. If you give the power switch a short nudge only, it goes in and out of "stand-by" mode, it is not really switched off.


Try to slide and hold the power switch again, until after the power light blinks three times. Should happe after ~5 seconds of holding. The Kindle should restart now --- takes about a minute, but you will see a progress bar to keep you happy during the delay.

Don't worry, you cannot fry your Kindle by navigating to any web page.

If you give the on / off switch a short nudge only, it normally goes in and out of stand-by mode. It can be switched on and off by sliding and holding the power switch for a few seconds. The power light behind the switch will blink three times to show you are doing it right. Note also, in order to work properly, the Kindle's battery needs to be charged. Connect your Kindle using the supplied USB cable to a PC for charging. When charging, the power light is orange, when full, the light turns green.

If by accident you set up your Kindle to request a password on start, so no unauthorized people can use it, and you forgot your password, you can contact Kindle support by toll-free phone. They'll help you to reset your password.

The phone number depends on the country of your residence, find the web site HERE to get the phone number that is right for you. Look for the headline "Additional Contact Options".
