My tablet pen stopped working what can I do?

I am also having the same issues with my E-295c tablet as well. Were you able to figure out what your problem is? I thought mine may have been my port replicator, but it continues after removing that. And mine always seems to do it for sure everytime I have a full screen video playing. Thanks!

^The question is NOT asking about a USB thumb drive, and a lot of people seem to have failed to understand this.

this problem occurs when the files in the master boot record get corrupt due to the actions of the viruses or any malfunction
this problem can be solved by repairing the current OS by the OS cd if you are an expert you can edit the MBR probably the message show NTLDR missing ,right
or format the system will surely solve the problem

Problem is is the battery already. Try to borrow or sample another battery of the kind then figure out if you need to buy one or if it's still in waranty.

What part of it do you need help with?

This is in case you cannot boot into windows but you can get into bios:
Open your disk drive. Insert windows operating system disk into your disk drive. Restart your computer.
If you can get to the stage where you can see see bios entry key then keep pressing whatever key it is that you press to get into bios at start up.
Select the option that let's you choose the drive to boot from, mine is in advanced bios options. then go to either something like bios features or change boot drive.select whatever drive represents your CD-ROM drive and select it to be the first boot drive.
then save exit bios, I do this by pressing escape then Y to save and boot from the rom drive.
This will let you restart your installation of windows and
re-format the drive...
If you can boot into windows:
Then either re-format the drive and delete the partition when you do or...
Run a recovery of the system by installing your disk and letting it get to the stage wher it asks what action/task you want to perform and press r when prompted then follow the prompts to repair the files. This might not work though,
you could even try running a disk check as maybe a lucky chance of repair if you can get into windows.
If your PC keeps trying to boot from the CD drive after repair then re-enter bios at start up and change your hard drive back to first boot device to boot into windows.

It's better if you re-format though as repairing windows can be a little tricky.

It typically means the hard drive has died

If that is you only concern, just set the time using the clock applet from inside Windows. Make sure to synchronize with the Internet time servers.

Try removing the battery and see if it will boot without it
Then check the caharger, charging light should be green and steady on the charger itself
If it is flickering, it meand power is not making a circuit, test charger jack with a DC volt multimeter with one probe to the outer side (earth) and one on the inner (positive). If this is ok, check the charging socket is not loose (if it is, will need replacing).

After that, suspect the power strip or charging / powerboard is dead on the motherboard

Hi,it is possible that the resultant cause the problem is your hard drive(caused by the hard disk failing to be READ from or be WRITTEN to,in this case be READ from),or one of your Memory modules is failing,so first of all try swapping or switching the RAM modules from one slot to the next,one at a time,if system is still slow,take out your hard disk,get a converter,slave hard disk to another system copy your files out and get a new Hard disk.

In case nothing worked to reset BIOS password (taking battery out, reseting jumper J1) you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the password. You've got Kill CMOS on there, for example which wipes out CMOS. Here's the download link to the entire CD: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip
