    My tablet freeze. after several reboot, it just stuck at the lock screen. I press on the lock to get to the main screen but I cannot unlock the lock to login. I reboot many times but nothing. It's just freeze when I see the time and the lock icon.
    I notice the battery remain at 15% no matter how long I charge.
    Please help!

    Thank you

    I've heard from people that Acer has them perform a hardware reset (using the button reset with a paperclip on the right side) or a factory defaults reset using a combination of buttons on the unit when it's turned on (probably have to call them to get instructions).

    im having the same problem. im so upset. i rarely play with this tablet (had it for 2 months). turned it on and it asked me if i wanted to update. i let it update and didnt play with it for a few days. i finally turn it on today and im seeing the same damn thing. i did the power / up volume key combo, it would say that its resetting the cache on the top left of the screen, then i get a green android character, then it goes to a green android character holding a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. so frustrated i dont know what to do.
