Is your battery removable? Try removing the battery and then plugging in the tablet. If the tablet runs on only the AC power, then your battery is shot.

Hmmm does the penn have a battery then? I guess something is wrong with the wiring as not just the pen does not work but touching all all not. Stuff should just simply work and not require loads of troubleshooting.

I know this is an old post, but the LED code for CAPS lock on, F4 flashing, F5 on means memory issue. I had this issue, reseated the memory, and the issue was resolved.

Might need a new touch screen. There\'s really no way around a faulty touchscreen, previous owner probably tapped it a lot

I believe the only way to remove it is to contact Dell with your service tag number.

Download and install the drivers from manufacturer website. If you are unable to recognize the device specific drivers then i would suggest to use the driver scanning tool, it will search for the drivers online and will show a list of of device specific updated drivers.
You can download the driver scanner tool here:

Hello dbessey,

High temperatures can cause a computer to shut down, this is done to protect the system from over heating and damaging components. Its possible the battery or some sort of power issue could be the cause, but its hard to know for sure. Its more likely an issue with a fan or vent, possibly even the heatsink that draws heat away from the processor and other components inside the tablet. Check to see if any vents are blocked or clogged with dust, can you hear any fans running? If not then maybe a fan has failed. Is the laptop used in a very dusty or smoky environment? If so there may be excessive dust and tar build up inside the tablet that is keeping it from cooling properly. The best thing to do would be to see if its still covered under a warranty and if they'll fix or replace it. If not, most repair centers will give it a once over and roughly diagnose the issue for free, if they need to take it apart to get a better look a small diagnostic fee may be involved. Personally I don't charge for anything that takes me less than 30mins to diagnose.

Hope this helps, and good luck.

Please leave feedback if you found this to be helpful, thank you.

Hi there, there are two possibilities here, one, the touch screen is compressed in 1 or more areas of the screen. two, it sounds like your PC has a prank virus in it that is causing unwanted side-effects. Try booting in safe mode on your tablet PC, and run a full virus scan.

You could be able to enable presentation mode by pressing the "settings" button on the bootom of your display, next to the power button and the "ctrl" and the rotate button. After you press that, your dell control point manager should pop up and then go to the tablet tab on the left and open it. after that, go to the display tab and you should see an option that allows you to turn your presentation mode on.
