Portege M750 and Win8.1 Pro -tablet buttons don't work

Q: Portege M750 and Win8.1 Pro -tablet buttons don't work

Hi

I'm having difficulties installing the tablet buttons in WINDOWS 8.1 Pro. Everything else works, perfectly.

In Windows 8 Pro this buttons worked nicely, but now, after a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro two of the buttons don't work. The buttons are the Toshiba assist button and the presebtation button. I've tried to configure them in Toshiba assist software but nothing happens.

I'm sure I've installed all drivers that made wverything work with Windows 8. As anyone tryed this and add success?

A: Portege M750 and Win8.1 Pro -tablet buttons don't work

> I'm sure I've installed all drivers that made wverything work with Windows 8

Windows 8.1 is not Windows 8 and many of Toshiba Win 8 drivers and tools don?t work or are not fully compatible with Win 8.1

As far as I know the Toshiba does not support Win 8.1 on this Portege M750.
This means that no Win 8.1 drivers will be released and in such case some notebook features like the control buttons could not work properly.

Fact is that using Windows Vista or Win 7, such buttons were controlled by Value Added Package. This package does not exist for Win 8.1 and has been replaced by other software called Toshiba System Driver

So in case you want to try to get the buttons to work, I recommend checking this with Toshiba System Driver

I have installed win7 64 bit ("fresh install" on my M750-129) and i have also downloaded and installed all the newest drivers from toshiba website.
the device manager shows no problem / drivers needed, and trhings like HDD protection work well.

However, i have four groups of problems i would love and appreciate to find answer:

1) when i change the screen position to tablet, it does not change the orientation nor the resolution.
There is no utility to set the desired orientations of screen as it was in vista (horribly unstable and slow OS, though).
This, naturally, is diminishing the usefullness of the tablet finction

2) the buttons do not work properly; the screen rotation button starts excel (!!) , the centre of mobility button starts word (!!), and the toshiba assistance button does not work at all

3) fingerprints: the fingerprint utility lets me to screen my fingerprint, asks if it should save it, and than says "saving impossible; another duplicate pattern exists" which i completely do not understand what it means...

4) some applications are not available at all after fresh install: face recognition, DVD player, bussines card screener - but i can love without those; 1-3 worries me much much more and i would appreciate any functional help. thanx on advance for any try!

A:Portege M750 tablet, buttons and fingerprint functions not working in win7

Hi

I think you would need an extension package in order to use the tablet functions on the Portege series.
I didn?t find the Tablet PC Extension Package for Win 7 but there is an package for Win Vista.

Usually many tools and drivers which were released for Vista would work with Win 7.
So in my opinion you should try to install additionally this Tablet PC Extension Package.
I think this should solve the issue with the buttons too!

Regarding the fingerprint;
I think the message means that an fingerprint was already registered and therefore an second save is not possible.
Check if you can delete other fingerprints?

Hi all,

can anyone help i got 2 spare batteries for my protege m750-11w and they dont work and i'm wondering do i need to do a BIOS update for them. The batteyr in my protege is PA3191U-5BRS and the two new batteries are both PA3191U-1BAS and it said that this battery would work where the -5BRS was in use.

I have updated my BIOS already from version 1.6 to version 3 and the battery still doesnt work i just get a white cursor flashing in the top left hand corner.

Does anyone know where i can obtain a BIOS update to except this battery?

Thanks

Tom

A:Portege M750-11W - New battery won't work

Hello

That means Windows doesn?t start with new battery and you see only the flashing cursor?
That?s strange? Have you connected the AC/DC adaptor?

In my opinion you should fully charge the battery before you start Windows. After this try it again.

I cannot get TOSHIBA Wireless Manager (3G) to work in a new installation of Win 7 64 bit.

I made a successful trial installation of Windows 7 64-bit on and old SATA hard disk drive and checked that TOSHIBA Wireless Manager would work. It did.

I then made a new installation of Windows 7 64-bit on a new Crucial C300 Real SSD 256GB.

The new installation with the Crucial SSD is not very successful.... The "shutdown and restart" operation does not work -- the shutdown does not always power off completely and you have to hold the power switch down to power off.

Sometimes the SSD will not boot -- you enter the BIOS password but then nothing happens. Sometimes you have to power down and take the battery out before the drive will boot.

But the biggest problem is that the Wireless Manager (3G) will not work. The application opens and states that "Radio is turned off" -- which it can't be as I'm using the WiFi to post this question.

I have tried installing the Vodafone 3G software. This detects the presence of the "mobile device" (SIM card in the slot) but then cannot enable it.

I have downloaded and installed all the latest chip drivers, the 3G driver, 3G software, LAN driver, LAN software and all Windows 7 updates.

I have the latest BIOS (3.0) but this has not been updated by Toshiba since 04/11/09.

I note that the Toshiba PC Diagnostic Tool does not recognize the 8G memory installed (but ccleaner does):

Model Name ... Read more

A:Portege M750 Win7 64bit Wireless Manager (3G) will not work

points to a firmware issue on the SSD drive (is it sandforce) coupled to BIOS incompatability of the SSD.

i presume all the drivers etc installed were identical on the HDD trial install? so if thats the case it has to be the SSD not communicating with the BIOS correctly, hence the other issues as well

About a week ago, my M800 laptop's multimedia buttons stopped working. They won't light up either. I've tried the Added Value Package fix and that doesn't seem to want to work for me. I downloaded TAVP but nothing happened.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the buttons work again? Thanks. I'm running on a 32 bit OS (if you need to know).

Hi l_vasic,

Have you checked the BIOS? As far as I know there you can also enable or disable these illumination buttons. It must be enabled?

Otherwise it would be interesting to know which OS you are using.
Did you download Value Added Package for Portege M800?

A:Portege M750 - is it 64bit capable?

Hi

Do you want to know if your Win 7 would recognize the 8GB RAM?
In order to use more than 4GB RAM three components needs to support this;
- chipset
- OS 64bit
- BIOS

As far as I know some of the M750 supports the Mobile Intel(R) GM45 Express Chipset.
This chipset is 8GB capable so it should be able to use 8GB RAM.
In such case I think that BIOS would also recognize 8GB RAM.

You can install any OS. You can use Win 7 64bit and I don?t see any reasons why this should not work

Hi Everyone,

I have a Portege M750 Model PPM75A-007010 and I need to change the CMOS (RTC) battery.

Can anyone share with me

- or where can I purchase this battery and price range?

Thanks,

Hi

Normally the RTC batteries in these models are rechargeable.
If not yet done, please let the unit run overnight (not off, not hibernated, not standby - but ON) and see if the issue is resolved.

I think the charge-description/characeristics of the RTC battery is mentioned in your users manual.

Hi,

just wanted to leave a message with the solutions I found for different applications for Portege M750.
These are the applications I use the most,
so if you need other drivers/applications just leave a reply and I'll try to find it.

_Got working:_
Bluetooth and 3G driver and therefore the GPS ( [Toshiba Europe|http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=EU] )
Screen Buttons, except the Toshiba Assist and Presentation button.
Both opens this: [Buttons|https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=0b5d644d977b4b3a&id=B5D644D977B4B3A%212226&sf f=1] ,

Which I find more useful then the old functions.
Installed Value Added Package, I think from here: [Go to download section|http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?modelFilter=M750-S7213&rpn=PPM75U&category=&selCategory=2756709&moi d=2266999&os=&ct=SB&selFamily=1073768662] . The one from europe site didn't worked.

FingerPrint utility.
Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Accounts and you have an option in the left side of the window for fingerprints. Installed the drivers and programs, works like a charm. Or search on google for TrueSuite

For the ctrl+al+arrow to flip the screen, I used iRotate (google it).

Still no solution for the HDD protection utility, yet.

A:Portege M750 PPM75E Windows 8 drivers - SOLUTION

Many Win7 drivers would work with Win 8 system.
But there are still some drivers and utilities which are not fully compatible.
I?ve got a tip for you:
As far as I know the HDD protection Utility is not a model related software.
You could try to install the Win 8 HDD protection Utility released for Prot?g? Z930

Would be really interesting to know if it works.

I just bought I used Portege M750 because my M700 was broken. Unfortunately, the select bays between both models are not compatible. Although the availability of a 2nd hdd caddy is mentioned in the users manual, I couldn't find the part no of the HDD caddy for the M750. I tried a standard SATA-SATA HDD caddy, but I get an "select bay error" message on startup, although the caddy works in windows as long as you don't hibernate.

Does anyone know the part no of the genuine 2nd hdd caddy for Portege M750 / M780? Or is there another 2nd hdd caddy which does work with the M750 without any restrictions?

A:Portege M750 doesn't start - power LED flashes

Hi

Short means 0, long means 1.
In your case the binary code is 1000 1001
Now you have to reverse the binary code due to most significant bit.
This means the code is; 1001 0001
The HEX code means; 91h

So error code is 91h but I don?t know what 91h means and what part could be affected exactly!

Possibly it?s something wrong with power supply electronic on the motherboard? but only the ASP technician could provide more details?
However, in most cases the motherboard is affected and should be replaced.

Since I remmember I use my laptop with enable sleep and hibernate features.
A couple of days ago it started not to restart after sleep or hibernate.

You have to take ou the battery and AC power and then it starts but without assuming the sleep/hibernate.

Another thing is that when you press the switch on button the AC power led, which is green normally, it starts blinking yellow with some sort of a code long and short flashes.

This happens with different operating systems cause I tried to reinstall and the problem persists.

> Another thing is that when you press the switch on button the AC power led, which is green normally, it starts blinking yellow with some sort of a code long and short flash

I know that if there is a memory malfunction the *Power indicator* will repeatedly flash on and off (0.5sec) If there is an error in slot A the indicator would flash orange twice then green.
If there is an error in slot B, the LED will flash orange once and green twice.
If error is in both slots, the LED flashes orange and green twice.

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

Quick question - will a keyboard for a Portege S100 work in a Portege M100?

Layout looks similar; albeit a different colour.

A:Will a keyboard for a Portege S100 work in a Portege M100?

Hi

I think you cannot use the same keyboard because the Portege S100 supports the an-easy-to-use 84-key (US) or 85-key (UK) keyboard and the Portege M100 supports the an-easy-to-use 85/86-key keyboard.
Furthermore the connector of the S100 supports the CN3230 keyboard interface 34 pin connector and the M100 supports the PJ3230 keyboard 34pin connector.

So possibly this could be a problem.
I recommend using the original keyboards released for the each notebook model.

Then I started to search on the forum and find out that two other guys succeded with the update according to the paper notice of Toshiba (changing the BIOS and secure boot).

What I can do because main does not work.

Please give me an advice.
It is 12Gmodel, Core i5 vPro

*Solved the issue.*

Just do the changes in BIOS.
Restart and wait till you got the message: restore to the factory setting.

Chose this option, put the DVD1 with W8 from Toshiba in the external ODD and follow the onscreen advices. Just one will be, with changing the DVD1 with the second one.

That is it. You have W8.

A:Portege R930-14C - Win8.1 and GPS connection

Hi

In Windows 8.1 this function is called ?Location tracking?.

You have to navigate to PC settings -> Privacy -> Location
Here you have to switch on the options:
- Let apps use my location

In this case single apps would be able to access the location (GPS) data.

Hi,

we have a Port?g? Z930 with Win 7 preinstalled.
Now we want to upgrade to Win 8.
There were two Win8 DVDs supplied.

Can I use this DVDs for upgrade?
How should I use the DVDs without a drive?

I tried the DVD with another laptop and the DVDs are not bootable.

Any hints?

A:How to install Win8 on Portege Z930

Hi

> How should I use the DVDs without a drive?
I assume you cannot use them if you have not external CD/DVD drive?

Maybe you could borrow such drive from a friend?

Otherwise try to copy the content of the disk to a USB flash memory stick and then try to boot from the stick.
But to be honest, I?m not quite sure it this would functions.

Hi

We have bought a Portege Z20t-C-121 to test it as a replacement for some of our senior management. I re-built it with Windows 10 Enterprise and installed all the latest Drivers from the Toshiba Website. The Intel Wi-Fi Driver did not work correctly so I downloaded and installed it from the Intel website.

The only thing I can't get to function seems to be the auto screen rotation; when I un-dock the screen to use it as a tablet Windows detects this and switches to tablet mode but, however I turn the screen it remains in the same landscape orientation that it was in when it was docked.

OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise
OS Version: 10.0.10586 N/A Build 10586

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get this feature to work please?

A:Can't install OS on optical drive-less Portege m200 Tablet, no USB boot

You don't say which operating system you are trying to install but try using the other PC to install the OS and then moving the hard drive back to the tablet to install the drivers and programs. Of course, you will need a bootable operating system cd and you should download your tablet drivers from the Toshiba website.

When you got the "missing boot manager" message, evidently you were trying to boot from that hard drive but that's not what you want to do if you are trying to install Windows, for example. Change the boot order to CD first so it will boot from your OS installation CD.

Hello!

31.Oct.2012 we purchased Portege Z930-G1S (PT234R) - quite an expensive notebook with Win7 Home Premium OS.

We thought we are entitled to Win8 discounted upgrade, but as we entered our data on Microsoft site - they told us we're not entitled.

We tried to reach Toshiba support in Russia - http://ru.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/contact_toshiba.jsp
Several times over a month.

But all the mails are returning with "invalid recepient address" error.

How can it be that official Toshiba support site enlists invalid blacklisted address ?
How can it be that recent and quite expensive Toshiba notebook is not subject to Windows 8 upgrade program ?

Thank you.

The point is that you have to order Windows 8 from Microsoft and install it.

I'm not sure if I have completely removed everything though. I uninstalled the stuff that was installed from the fake Ipadian from the add/remove programs in control panel. I removed the firefox addon that was not supposed to be there and the popups appear to have stopped and none of my tabs are forced to auto reloading. I went into internet explorer's internet options advanced tab clicked reset and chose the delete personal settings option. I ran spybot search and destroy and my bitdefender virus scanner. With that attached are the logs requested for posting (character limit of post exceeded by 100s of 1,000s to copy paste them).

Good evening everyody, sorry I'm new here.

Here's my problem : I have a brand new asus transformer book t100HAN, but it came with windows 10 family edition in it, which I intensely dislike.

I have two copies of windows 8 pro (through my university) one x32 and one x64 ; is there any way for me to ditch the windows 10 and install one of my win8 on the t100HAN ?

Thanks in advance.

A:How do I install Win8 on a t100AH tablet with windows 10

I'm not a big fan of Win10 myself, but consider that Win8 is already out of support, so you would need to upgrade to Win8.1 soon after install. And, if you then add a Start Menu (of which several good ones are available), then what you end up with is a LOT like Win10. Myself, I refer to Win10 as Win8.2 with spyware -- as that is what I consider it to be. And, I use the best Win10 spyware remover out there (Destroy Windows 10 Spying) to disable the telemetry being sent to MS, and I do NOT use Cortana, OneDrive, or Store apps.

The other big difference between Win8.x and Win10 is the forcing of Windows Updates -- but there are also ways (as documented in our sister site -- the Win10 Forums) to disable Windows Update from updating Drivers.

My advice is to make these changes and stick it out with Win10 for a while -- and see if then, it's tolerable. Moving back to Win8.1 is really NOT going to be a lot different from Win10.

Hi,

did you already tried to reinstall the drivers?? Usually, if you connect the tv PROPERLY to your portege, the TV-Out should recognize that something is connected and should show you the icon while switching the output devices.

Maybe something on your cable is wrong??
Just do the following: reinstall the drivers, plug a cable into your machine and the tv and then try to switch the devices.

Please give some feedback after performing this..

The notebook supports definitely the USB 2.0 ports.
I guess this message could appear due to different reasons: for example USB device malfunction.
Also the USB port problem could be responsible for such error message.

Therefore as first workaround I recommend you to remove the USB hubs and controllers from device manager list.
Open device manager, search for USB hubs and controllers and uninstall the driver.
Then reboot the notebook

Usually system will start to recognize the USB devices.

Thank you in advance!!

A:In-built micro of Portege R & Windows 7 does not work

Hi Goldie,

Right clicking on the speaker in the taskbar, going to recording devices, make sure you have only got one microphone option there would be the first step, if you have got more than 1, try right clicking them and 'setting as default' for each of them seeing if that works.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

I have an older Toshiba Portege A600-13T Netbook, I am quite satisfied with it, but in the last time the WEBCAM is not working and I have no idea what to do. If I try to activate the camera I get the answer:

The WEB Camera couldn't been initialized

In Systemcontrol the message is:

The camera couldn't been started, Code 10

If I look at the driver and try to update, the message is:

The optimal driver is already installed

May be somebody has some idea what can I do and how to proceed. Sorry my bad english!

Thank you in advance and best regards

A:Portege A600-13T - webcam stopped work

Hi

Error code 10 means that the device could not be started.
This can be related to driver (software) problem as well as hardware problem.

Let?s see if its an software issue: to check this I would recommend you to uninstall the Chicony webcam software firstly.
As far as I know you should be able to uninstall the software in control panel ? programs & features.
In case the Chicony webcam software will not be listed there, go to device manager and uninstall the webcam driver which you should find under ?Imaging devices?.

After system reboot, go to Toshiba EU driver page and download the Chicony webcam software in order to perform new installation.
Probably you will need to reboot the notebook once again to get it working properly.

So lets hope this short procedure would solve your issue? of course only if the issue is related to software problem.

Had to rebuild my beloved Portege M100 following a hard drive failure.
Everything works fine except the video player.

Tried using Windows Media Player and Intervideo Win DVD but both close as soon as the video starts.
WMP says that it is a problem with a codec called ivivideo which comes form Intervideo or Corel as they now are.

However their site is less than helpful and I just cannot find a way to update this.

Any suggestions anyone?

A:Portege M100 - video player does not work

Hi

Try the VLC player.
It?s small tool/player which can be downloaded for free.
It plays most files problem free.

Additionally you could install some codec packages like K-Lite codec package

Good luck

So I've bought a pen for M200 and reinstalled the operation system.
Now I have M200 with Windows XP Tablet PC edition, a Screen Rotation utility and Pen Button utility. Now Pen Buttons work fine with my new pen, but the screen itself doesn't. I mean, the pen doesn't work with the screen.

I have a Mice and other pointing devices menu in Device Manager and it consists of the following sub-menus:

The existing batter will no longer charge. It is a Li-ion PA3191U-5BRS - 10.8V 4700 mAh. I have an almost new replacement battery for my earlier Portege with idenitcal fittings but with 10.8V 4600mAh. It is not a Toshiba model and states that it is to replace PA3176U-2BRS. Can I use it in my M700 without risk of damage or reduced performance?

To be honest I doubt that it will work because the specifications are different.
In your case I wouldn?t try it, in worst case you destroy the computer.

It would be better if you buy a new battery with the exact specifications. Authorized service provider in your country can make you an offer for this.

Hi,

I have a 6 month old Z30-A Portege i7 laptop (PT243A-0HW02X) running Windows 7 64bit, and the 13.3" 1920x1080 internal display screen is not working - nothing is displayed on the screen.

However I can connect an external monitor via the RGB cable port or to the HDMI port and still use the laptop that way.

I have tried various Function F5 Output toggles choosing Clone, External, Extend, Switch Display, but nothing works to get output back again to the laptop display screen.

On the External option I see a laptop icon in grey colour with a X on the screen, and a '1' on the other display icon, and a window appears for 'Toshiba Flash Cards' with red x error message " Failed to initialize Output Configuration dialog!".

There is no further help available to tell me what the problem is.
When I choose the Function F5 Output Configuration option, the 'Internal' line is greyed out, so I can't select it.

Has anyone else had this issue?
Could a BIOS update help to tell me if there is a hardware issue?
There is nothing about the display error in the Windows event viewer.

Thanks.

A:No display on Portege Z30-A screen but HDMI / RGB ports work

I have a similar problem.

When I boot up, I see the Windows 7 logo, but then everything goes black after that.

I can start the computer in safe mode and the laptop screen works no problem. In Safe Mode I can even switch to 1920x1080 resolution. So the video hardware + drivers are working, just not in normal Windows mode.

Tried reinstalling video drivers but no luck.

I also wiped the computer and reinstalled Windows 7 + video drivers and still no luck...

It started happening literally out of the blue... after six months, like yourself.

I have a Z30t-A-123.

Hello All

I have a Toshiba Portege A200 (PP415E). I have a problem with the keyboard as follows:

a) The Del key is dead as are the 'up' and 'left' arrow keys

b) when pressed the left button (below the touchpad) defaults to 'delete' (rather than open)

c) any USB mouse I use works initially OK, but occasionally a 'left click' of it (e.g in a Word document) will begin deleting text (cursor moves backwards)

The symptoms exist in XP Pro (any application), in Puppy Linux from live CD etc etc - so its not a software/OS problem.

Its also NOT a dirty keyboard - everything has been scrupulously cleaned. Ive also replaced the keyboard with a new one - and the problem persists.

I suspect a motherboard/keyboard chip problem and am looking for a part number/source for a new motherboard
can anyone point me in the right direction for more motherboard info/parts suppliers (UK preferred)

Many Thanks
Regards
Andrew

A:Imput devices on Portege A200 do not work properly

HI Andrew

As you know such information is mostly for internal purposes and you will be very lucky if someone can offer this info. What you can do is to contact authorized service provider in your country and ask for help. They have access to Toshiba database and they can help you for sure.

From time to time check eBay. There you can find many hardware parts for Toshiba notebooks. With a little bit luck you will find used mainboard for few bucks.

Hi,

I have Windows XP on a new HP laptop. I attempted installing McAffee software from a link through my school's site and it would not completely install. There are no signs of it on my comp. I was then using a cd from the publisher of one of my textbooks and had to install Quicktime. No problem. Went to install the other program I needed and the button would depress (page not locked up) but would not do anything. I then discovered yahoo mail was acting strange. I cannot reply to any emails (NO buttons work after I sign in) nor can I read anything other than text now. I attempted to get to system restore, thinking I would just go back a few days. No dice. System restore will not run. It brings up a small blank screen. Only once have I gotten an error msg that said I did not have administrator privileges for restoring. Of course, I went to look at users and that screen came up small and blank as well, though with a bar at the top that said "Users Home", back, and forward. SO, I restart the comp in safe mode and sign in as administrator. Same problems. I cannot even go to START-->HELP AND SUPPORT. Nothing at all happens when I do. I've checked all the processes running.
Now I cannot even do a search on yahoo without getting an error message before it works:

Hi

On some web sites I visit, some of the (what I call) hotspot butons don't seem to work.
What I mean by those are the buttons you click on on the screen to take you to another page - such as on a hotel booking page. eg Enter details, click on the "next" button........but it's just like there's no command behind it. Some of the other similar buttons on the same screen do work.

Tried on another computer, and they do work !!

Both computers fairly new and Vista Home Premium.

Is it something to do with Javascript (whatever that is) ?

A:Hotspot buttons sometimes don't work

I have an older desktop PC with a Windows Vista OS. I'm thinking of purchasing a Tablet but I'm not sure it will work because I use a modem. I was told that Tablets come with a wireless internet card but will the tablet work if I'm not using a wireless connection? What will I need to do or what will I need to purchase to make it work? Sorry, but I'm not up-to-date on the latest technology.

A:Will Tablet work with a modem?

Depends on the definition of "works", But i am assuming you mean connecting to the internet. The answer is no.

All internet connctions at home use a modem, What kind of internet do you have? Cable company, Phone cable always on, or actual dial-up like old school style?

If its high speed, its quite possible your provider has a modem/wireless router you can trade your old one in for free.

If itsa skretchy modem type, I'm not sure what you can do, other than use free hot spots.

She purchased the tablet in China, and it worked on various computers in China.

However, after installing the software successfully on the New Zealand computer, the software is unable to recognise characters that my mother inputs into the computer.

How do I tackle this problem? Thank you.

Note: The tablet is by the company 'Uniscom', if that makes any difference.
