I've tried that. It won't let me get past the part where I enter the information about my tablet because it says it's out of warrenty. I know this, annd i know whats wrong, but I can't submit a request for repair.

Acer man ----- would you please to tell us that it is a hardware failure (from what I have read mostlikely the NAND flash memory failure) and only solution is to replace the motherboard, if you can confirm this I can live with buying a motherboard from Ebay and replace the failed one!!!!

Okay - thank you for that advice. I did what you suggested, and although the Tablet made a buzz, it just remained on the Acer screen. What next?
I did send Acer an email asking a question about the problem. The response told me I would hear from you within 24 hours. I still haven't heard a word. Why???

Beginning a couple of days ago, I too am experienceing the boot problem on my A500 and all attempts to reset have failed. I assume that you will resolve this issue at no charge as you have done for others once I provide my SNID? Should I provide it via this forum or through some other channel?

I'm running into the exact same issue as a number of people. My Tab A500 froze up on me yesterday and when I did a hard reset it's now stuck on the Acer splash screen and won't move past. I've tried both manual reset methods and the problem still exists. Is Acer going to repair these units for free since this appears to be a defect in the product?
