j3400 dark bios screen
At the splash screen, when I press the dashboard button to access the bios menu, all I get is a loud beep and a dark screen. This is a J3400 tablet.
Is this a good question?
Are you tapping the screen or pressing the Space bar (if you have a keyboard attached) after pressing the Dashboard button?
Here is the procedure, taken from the User Guide, (scroll to p.52) to access the BIOS menus in your tablet
1. Start the Tablet PC.
2. When the Motion Computing splash screen appears, press the Dashboard button.
When access is enabled, you will hear an alert sound. If you miss the splash screen, restart the computer and try again.
3. Quickly tap the screen with the tablet pen to open the system setup menu. If you have a keyboard attached, you can also press the space bar to open the system setup menu.
Bit confused as this link says that the BIOS firmware is suitable for all versions of Win 7.
Does it fail when you go to install it as per the outlined procedure then? Usually as long as the OS can execute the file so that it passes the file info to the BIOS eeprom that is all that needs to happen.
Also I wouldn't install J3500 firmware into a J3400 simply because a J3500 is setup to run an i7 CPU whereas the J3400 only handles a Core 2 Duo so there may be a lot of differences in how the BIOS handles it.
