    What's the date it is showing? I my gTablet would not connect with the market. The information noticed the date and ran a program to synchronization the date/time. The market then worked!

    Hi there
    Here is a solution for you both. It worked for me and here is the hint. using your recovery disch that came with the box, make a USB bootable recovery drive and reinstall the windows. This must solve the problem.
    If you have not deleted any thing by mistake...it will work for you both

    Error 15,
    using a usb key board, powerup, and hit del repeatedly until you come to the boot option screen. change the drive boot sequence...

    So I am having the same Error 17 issue, and when I tried the restoration solution via making a Bootable USB drive from the Windows disk that came with my tablet I ran into this picture after it loaded up. So it seems there is no way to get back into my system... Any ideas?

    Hi,

    I have a Viewsonic Viewpad 10.

    I'm new to this board but Im having the same issue as above.

    My viewpad 10 has a dual operating system windows 7 home and android 2.2.

    Is it possible to just install the windows 7 operating system or windows 8 OS?

    Please, I need some help!!

    It doesn't sound as if others had much luck. I have an idea that you could try.

    Boot up Linux from a CD, and see if you can access your files. Ubuntu Linux would work, as would most others. Linux will run directly from the booted CD, no istall needed. It should be able to access both the Windows and Android partitions

    As fas as I know and correct me if I'm wrong, It's an error with GRUB.... This happens when you install/reinstall GRUB and for some reasons, GRUB's booting sequence got messed up....

    There are many solutions on the web, most of them deals with using a Linux Live CD (Ubuntu, Debian etc.)
    I don't know much about Linux and it's commands which is sometimes confusing.

    An alternative is repairing the Windows Master Boot Record
    Here are the steps:

    1. Using an external dvd drive or usb, boot up your Windows Installation disk.
    2. After the files finish loading and you got into the Windows Installation interface, click some "Next"s until you find and option to "Repair Your Computer".
    3. Then a scanning procedure will follow. It will try to identify the partition where the previous Windows OS was installed. When it finds your OS click next.
    4. Choose "Command Prompt". This will be the option will be using in repairing the MBR
    5. Type these commands:

    bootsect /nt60 c:

    then wait as it repairs the C: partition, after that type:

    bootsect /nt60 c: /mbr

    it will now repair the MBR

    After that, you can reboot and hopefully you can boot your tablet with Windows

    Note: If your Windows OS was installed in another partition (D:,E:,F:, etc.) then change the letter in the commands above.

    Hope this helps

    this part of the forum and thread is for the Viewpad 10 Dual boot, you would probably have better luck posting this in the correct forum as the chances of someone here having this Viewsonic tablet is pretty slim. the only advice I can give you is see if there is a small hole for a reset button (if there is find something to push it), or try holding the power button until it shuts off (may or may not work) or you might have to wait until the battery drains. either way good luck.

    Go to this web site:

    Start Here - Viewsonic GTablet For Dummies

    Scroll down to the "Code Red" section. It mentions the "stuck at birds" problem, and should be able to guide you to a fix.

    I had a g-tablet, and they are almost impossible to brick. So be comforted in the knowledge that your tablet can be restored. You just may need to learn more about it first.
