    About a year ago, I bought a 7 inch Android tablet on line...paid about $59, and thought I got a good deal. I never really used it though, and just put it away in a drawer...still in the box. I now have wireless in my home, and a smart phone, and discovered the tablet while cleaning today, and would like to use it. It doesn't seem to have a power cord that will attach to a wall outlet in my home, so I plugged it into my computer and hoped I was charging it, but nothing has happened, and it doesn't power up or come on. What should I do?

    Welcome to the forum
    The PC probably can't output quite enough power to do a "proper" charge, but if you leave it there long enough with the PC on and awake it should charge. It may require a long press of the power button but leave it at least 5 hours on the PC first.

    btw: it should have come with a charger.

    What if you got one of those AC to USB converters available anywhere and plugged your USB to micro USB wire into it? That should charge it much faster. Those are designed for phones.

    you can usually find chargers for most tablets on Ebay at a pretty reasonable price.
