    Sorry to start this thread but please read...!

    I have been reading this forum for the correct answer to my problem which I have set out below. From the looks of it, my problem is far from being unique. The problem I have, and please try to be gentle with me, is that most oif the stuff I have read I haven't got a clue what I am reading! I appreciate that replying to such a daft noob is not too cool but if it is possible to help using language for complete idiots the this idiot would be much appreciated!!!

    Well, here's the problem. I have the Acer A100 and it won't boot up - won't do much at all in fact. It was all working fine then without warning it just stoped. As said I have looked in here and other places online for what to do and have tried a few things, hard reset with the pin, holding down volume rocker then toggle screen lock switch etc. Got the little Android robot juggling the shape and then the robot on his back with the red triangle. Just tried again and I can't even get the Acer logo to appear now. I have removed the SD card and via my PC I have a card reader so should be able to upload things to the SD card - what can I do to retrieve this tablet? I don't care about saving data etc, I just want to wipe it if needs be and reload an OS that works if possible.

    Can I put something on the SD card and do some mystical secret magical button holding sequence that loads up the SD card and all is hunky dory? Or am I screwed?

    Many thanks in advance and please treat gently!

    Emgee or Mark,

    You had me really guessing there with your choice of heading for your post "Sorry to start this thread but please read...!" . That doesn't help other persons who may later look through the forum hoping to find an issue similar to theirs. Why not use a heading like "Acer A100 won't boot up"?

    Nevertheless, IMHO, your A100 is bricked. If you search these forums you will find similar threads/posts. You can also have a look at The Brick Thread (if you haven't as yet). However, it seems as though you have already tried to reset it and failed. All I can say is if you are certain you have followed the instructions given both here and at XDA's forum and still failed to get the tablet to boot, then it's bricked.

    It does sound like the classic brick that Agouti talked about. All you can really do is try a factory reset, try to flash the stock rom, or contact acer to warranty it. All the links are in my signature.
