    I bought this laptop at Staples, and it has been working fine since then. Wendesday nite it was working fine. I haven't loaded much on the system expect a few games.
    Today when trying to boot my computer, it doesn't load up. The light for the AC adapter is on, the power button will turn on as well. When it does load up, the hard drive button blinks for a few moments, and the dvd drive runs for a few cycles, then nothing. The power light still stays on, as well as the ac adapter.

    I tried to unhook the ac and battery to see if it would help, but nothing. If i try to put a disk into the dvd it sounds like it is running for a bit again, but the screen stays blank. It does sound like maybe a fan is running as well.

    Is this an operating system issues? or a computer issues?
    Should I take it back to the store for a refund?
    I really did like using this product and this is my newest laptop in over 7 years.

Proscan tablet won't turn on

Try this. Plug your charger in. Then press the power button repeatedly until the screen comes up with a charge icon showing.
Hold the power button down until the blue screen comes up. Then if it boots up just leave the tablet alone and give it some time. You should see an android come up and then a scan of the android words start . This takes time. Don't be impatient . It may boot into a factory reset mode. Just start again with the factory screen.

You can try repeating the process if it doesn't work the first time.

ASUS T100 stuck at preparing automatic repair message will.not reboot

Hello there, i just owned a brand new Asus T100 for 2 days and today on the 3rd day after purchasing, i faced problems during boot/start up where the laptop gets frozen on the Asus logo screen.
I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds and turned it on again. It ran a series of windows software updates before the start up, then after all software updates have been completed, the laptop resumed to freeze at the Asus logo screen again. I tried holding the power button for 10 secs followed by holding the power button and volume up button at the same time, to get into automatic repair/repair mode. THIS HELPS, get into the repair mode!

To cut it short, i tried the other advanced options as well as the restart button in the repair mode but to no avail. After carefully reading the different options in the 'advanced options' in repair mode...
Here's what worked for me:
1) If you're stuck at the Asus logo screen which doesn't seem to boot for ages or at least 10 minutes, hold down the power button for 10 seconds and let the screen turn black. (I did this with my charger plugged in, not too sure if it matters)
2) Count to 10 seconds. Switch the laptop on by HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON + VOLUME UP BUTTON at the same time. This will send the laptop into an 'automatic repair', followed by a 'diagnosing this PC' and after which you will see a blue screen which is the repair mode.
3) On the blue screen you will see 2 buttons, 'Restart' and 'Advanced Options'. Click on 'Advanced Options'. (DO NOT CLICK RESTART, it does nothing as you will get stuck again at the logo screen)
4) After clicking 'Advanced Options', click 'Advanced ....' (i forgot what exactly) and click 'STARTUP REPAIR'. This is the crucial part.Then follow whatever the system promts you.
5) Afterwards, it will attempt to repair your system then lead you back to the logo screen for startup.
6) Wait a few minutes and you should be able to get to your login screen as usual.

Hope this helps. I chanced upon it by guessing which would actually help me.

Laptop screen won't come on

The problem could be as simple as the hinge switch that switched off the backlight when you close the cover. If the computer seems to start up, but you just can't see anything, wait until the unit has had enough time to fully come up to either the login screen or the desktop (however it's configured to start). Look VERY carefully at the dark scrren to see if you can just make out the login graphics or desktop icons. If you can, then the unit has booted up ok, but your LCD backlighting is not working. This could be because the backlight lamp is defective, or its power supply may be defective, or the little switch back near the hinge of the case is stuck or defective. Check this first.

Signing out problem

To turn off, hold down power button (may take "long" time--6-8seconds). It WILL shut down.

If recurring problem, check setup settings for Power switch and lid options--turn off, go into standby, etc.
