A tablet computer is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, circuitry, and battery in a single device. Tablets come equipped with sensors, including cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer, and the touchscreen display uses the recognition of finger or stylus gestures replacing the usage of the mouse and keyboard. They usually feature on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboards for typing. Tablets may include physical buttons for basic features such as speaker volume and power, and ports for network communications and battery charging. Tablets are typically larger than smartphones or personal digital assistants.

Context for my lack of knowledge:
I wasn't formally trained in sysadmin work, but have learned on the job for years now. I work at a shop that has never done imaging the 'approved' way, as no sysprep was ever used for any of hundreds of PCs, and OEM media/install was the image source. (No issues from that BTW... But also no Win 10 in domain yet either...)  TL;DR- I'm used to just PXE booting to K2000, and grabbing an image with an easy GUI, so I know next to zero about cmd line imaging tools like imageX or DISM.

However, after some shifts in staff, I'm now the lead and want to do things as 'right' as is possible.  I am tasked with deploying numerous identical tablets, and all of the tutorials/videos/examples shown here an elsewhere on the web don't really apply to my situation.  Leaving me very confused about the proper method to accomplish this task.  Plus, I want to make sure that we acquire the knowledge to apply 'best practice' imaging techniques wherever possible from here forward, as I'm convinced Win10 will not image correctly or play nice in our domain if not sysprepped.

Before anyone asks: Yes, we have a 10 Pro VLK.  But, we must retain the preinstalled OEM 10 Pro key already on the tablets.

Tablet imaging requirements:
  • Retain OEM key
  • Retain all user config (wallpapaer, colors, lock screen, no OS sounds, desktop shortcuts, etc.)
  • Capture & Deploy via USB with free windows tools (We have a Kace, but no PXE capable adapters for the tablets)

Hello Experts,
I recently took over maintaining and developing VBA applications at my company.  The original developer is not available. One program I have taken over is an Access 2007 system for entering data on 8 different tablets. The code works everyday, however the process of completely understanding just how it is working is quite challenging (and also generally considered a lower priority project, compared to development).    Each tablet has it's own local db, with forms and a 'main' table.  There is a Master db on the network that has vba in it to pull data from the 8 tablets.  This is not a true front/back split situation, as most of the data truly lives independently on the tablets.

The tablets have forms which pop up on timers for users to enter values -- some every 10 minutes and another every 2 hours.  After interacting with the form, the values are stored in the underlying 'main' table.  

We have recently become aware of some gaps in the main table -- the program is running, the forms are popping up, and the users are interacting with them as usual.  No error messages pop up.  However, when one views the main table, you can see the values are not recorded.  In the past week this has occurred on 3 different tablets.  Closing and reopening the Access program seems to fix the problem, however, there is no good way currently to become aware of this problem to know to 'fix it'.

My colleague and I plan to attempt a compact and repair on the programs this …

I have a lenovo a10-70f that only boots into recovery mode. I choose a command and I get the dead android logo with a triangle coming out of its stomach with a caption "no command"

My diagnostic is that the OS updated and screwed up, I've seen it similarly before with Google Play soft-bricking the entire tablet.

There is an option to update from from, does anyone know where I can get a copy of the original android image for this device? And where can I get a copy of the fastboot adb.sh file? I had it a while ago, and I lost it when my server mobo died.

Hi there,

I am using a hybrid tablet pc with windows 10 (with Dockable keyboard and trackpad) however, when I close the table in laptop mode the screen does not shut off and go into sleep mode like it used to I have tried changing settings in the power management screen to no avail. Is there a way to force this in the registry? I have heard that this could be an issue with intel engine management and there are suggestions to roll back to a previous driver I have not attempted this suggested solution yet

I've been using OPENDNS on my Netgear R7000 for over a year - it successfully filters out undesirable items from all computers on our home network.  A few days ago I noticed that it still blocks when using tablets (iPads / iPhones) but is no longer work on any hard-wired computer.  Been trying to troubleshoot this for days - no luck.  Have tried all suggestions in their forums (https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/227988707-Why-OpenDNS-is-Only-Working-on-One-or-Some-of-my-Computers-Devices#scenario2) - no luck.  Anyone else had this issue?

We have a shop that uses Topaz Model: T-LBK462-BSB-R signature pads in a Remote Desktop environment. We have 7 total signature pads and two of the pads freeze up and stop working when the software tries to call the signature pad on COM9. The other 5 signature pads are configured exactly the same and are working with no issues.

The OS that the pads are working on are either Windows 7 x64 or Windows 10 x64 and can't seem to figure out why the other two pads freeze up and stop working. I can login to the remote server once and use the DEMO software remotely and it works, but every time after that we have to force-close the software and re-establish the connection.

Just wondering if anyone knows why these two pads may be timing out and not working, or why the COM ports become non-responsive. I've tried swapping computers, and signature pads and the pads work on other computers with no issues. I have the latest USB drivers and BIOS and have wiped and reloaded windows to try and resolve the issue.

I did some testing on the server with HyperTerminal and found that I wasn't able to connect to COM9 right away, but after I run "change port /query" on the server in the command prompt, I was able to connect to COM9 with HyperTerminal with no issues and run a test on the sig pad. Why would running "change port /query" make the redirected port available?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

We have 2 Azpen a1048 tablets that were recently purchased from a local retailer. When attempts were made to install needed applications there were errors that would occur after install saying "Root Detected". A call to Azpen support concluded that the tablets needed to be "flashed", however they were sure to mention that doing so would void the warranty even though they provided the image.

Thank fully we only flashed 1 of the tablets which can be recognized via USB, but since the flashed image was applied NOTHING appears on the screen when it is powered on. The power button was held in for minutes and left charging overnight - still nothing appears on screen. Not even the Android robot. We cannot get this item to display anything, but we can see the storage via Windows Explorer.

We have tried 2 compatible Allwinner tools, both which say flashing 100% complete, but the tablet fails to display anything on screen. It's disappointing that Azpen would conclude flashing was needed and then say it's not supported. I'm hoping somebody has an idea before we throw this tablet away.

Any advice will be most appreciated. Thx

Hi,

We're experiencing an issue with regards to ADFS 3.0 login page not rendering correctly on a mobile device under certain conditions.  I have attached a screenshot.

I have an Android device and when using Chrome the text overlays the password box if I use my SwitfKey keyboard but if I use the standard builtin keyboard then the text is fine.

On some other devices (Windows phone) the text overlays without the keyboard on the screen at all.

Is there something I can do in the ADFS config for the login page?

Thanks

I have a Hexa Spring 8 Windows 10 tablet. I was downloading anniversary update and after it finished, the screen told me that the tablet was offline and to enter the last password, which I did. It tells me "your device is offline. Sign in with the last password used on this device. " 
How can I reset it without a keyboard (no visible poke hole) .

We were evaluating one of these tablets but once we had added it to the domain, and our Group Policies had applied, we need to use CTRL-ALT-DEL to log in.

There are no key sequences to do this on the Lenovo.

Other tablets use Power key + Volume up or down, but this does not work.

I updated it to the latest BIOS but still no go.

Lenovo customer support did not have a clue.

Obviously you can attach a keyboard and do it, but we need to use these as tablets in the filed without keyboards.
