3 Common Tablet Problems And How To Fix Them

Just as much can go wrong with a tablet as a computer. When you factor the screen into the equation, even more can go wrong with a tablet. Luckily, there are some easy fixes if you're having problems with your tablet. Here are three common problems that your tablet could have and how to fix them.

1. It Freezes Randomly

The only thing more frustrating than being in the middle of an email and just have your tablet freeze up is for it to do this on a regular basis. One issue that might cause this problem is if your tablet's operating system has not been fully updated. You can go to your tablet's update notification screen to check if you have any pending updates. If you do, have those updates installed and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't work, check to see if you have f.lux installed. This is a common problem for tablets that have f.lux. It can be fixed by simply uninstalling the software. Finally, doing a hard reset of your tablet might do the trick. Check your owner's manual for how to do a hard reset.

2. Your Cursor Disappears When the Screen Flips

If you turn your tablet over to read an article and the screen flips but the cursor disappears, it can be very difficult to navigate away from that article when you're done. To fix this, check your Settings tab and look under Screen Orientation. If you've changed any of the settings, reset them back to their factory defaults and then hit the button that will apply this change. If that doesn't work, try removing any accessories that you might have attached to your tablet, including a keyboard. If this doesn't fix the problem, contact a professional.

3. Your WiFi is Super Slow

If your WiFi is going incredibly slowly, first try disconnecting from the WiFi and then reconnecting. If this didn't help and you're sure that it's not the provider of the WiFi with the problem, uninstall your WiFi driver and then reinstall it. This will allow your tablet to reset all of its wireless settings and hopefully get a faster WiFi connection.
