Hi, I just bought a gbook for my nephew's Christmas present. I unwrapped it to check everything was working okay. I charged it and then tried switching it on. The screen displayed the "ARNOVA" logo and nothing else. None of the buttons had any effect. I tried resetting it with a paperclip. The screen went blank for a few seconds and then came back with the ARNOVA logo but still didn't work. When it is connected to a computer it is recognised as an external hard drive "B-D ROM Drive". I am not massively computer literate and am starting to get a bit panicky - under normal circumstances I'd just return it and get a replacement but I bought it in London and we're in Rio for Christmas and it's all getting a bit worrying. Any help, advice, prayers would be welcome!
I don't know much about the Gbook yet, but if there is a reset pinhole try to put a paperclip in it, see if it helps restarting. There are a few Gbook users in our forum, they may have some better tips.

Hi I am having the same problem, but i bought my tablet from HMV so cant even take it back for a replacement, did you manage to get your tablet working and if so could you post how.
I have tried the paperclip resetting it but only the arnova splash screen comes on then nothing.
Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance.
If you are from UK, you can send it to me, and i will try to dump the firmware from it and recover it.
