    Alright well, i just recently bought this tablet from cosco (go figure) for around $1000

    Windows Vista Home Premium
    2812 GB RAM
    HD Radeon 3200
    AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-70 ~2.0ghz

    I wish i could tell you more, but i cant get the computer running long enough to even run a dxdiag and save the information.

    Basically, its been hell since the start. First, the computer would freeze after the vista login logo displayed, and would require a restart. Then, when you turned it on, it would say it was trying to configure updates and would be frozen at 0% until you restarted it. Occasionaly, it decides not to configure updates and let me log in. About ~20% of the time i usually have no problems, and am able to use the tablet like normal, but with increasing frequency it will either freeze completely until i restart it, or the screen will go completely black, again until i restart it.

    Im thinking it might possibly be an overheating issue, but im really not sure

    Ive tried updating the drivers, removing bloatware, scanning viruses etc/etc (the machine came running nearly 100 processes as soon as i turned it on). Everything short of reformatting it.

    Anyone have any idea of what could be the issue? Is there a problem with this certain model that im missing? Thanks for any help/insight into this problem that anyone can give.

    Hi there,

    It sounds like you have an "Automatic Updates" issue. Microsoft's Update feature is both handy and deadly at the same time. MANY people have trouble with it. I'd recommend going into the control panel and disabling Automatic Updates and see if that solves your problem. if it does, just remember that you are no longer being updated automatically, and you should check Windows Update once every week or two, just to be safe against the latest security flaws, and maybe Microsoft will release an update to fix your problem with their software.

    Hope this helps.
