Starting up the Tablet PC

This page covers how to turn on and start up the Tablet PC, depending on the model.

  • If the Tablet PC screen goes completely black or stops responding to touch, it’s probably in Sleep mode. Press and hold the power switch to force a shutdown, then restart. Depending on the model, you may need to press for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • If the Tablet PC doesn't turn on, the charge may be empty. Disconnect and reconnect the power and USB cables and docking station before restarting. See this page for disconnecting and reconnecting.
