Almost Bricked My New Venue 8 Pro


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I had just upgraded the Bios to A04. No issues. Then I d/l the latest Intel Atom Drivers from Dell's website. Started the install and when it got to about 90%, I got a blank screen. Actually a blank screen with the screen slightly lite. No response to any buttons, no response to the touch screen. Basically I had to let the system run down and shut itself down.

Where is CTL ALT DEL without a keyboard?

Upon reboot, which took about 3 hours before I could turn the system back on, I got a "Preparing to Repair" from Dell boot up. But it could not repair itself.

I did another reboot and all looks good. Don't know if the Drivers were installed as I could not find them in Device Manager.

Don't know what or why this happened. I'll be checking Dell's site soon for a solution.
