    When coming into work today I dropped my tablet that was inside a hard shell case. It only dropped about a foot, and I hoped everything would be alright. When I got to work and it fired up I thought everything was golden until I tried to unlock it, and the touch screen would not work. After checking out the tab I found that one corner of back had popped loose. I clicked everything back together, and prayed as I fired it back up. Thankfully it was working again! So just an FYI, if this happens to someone else, this is what fixed mine.

    At least now you know you can access and change the battery. :)
