Answer to "My nextbook ares 10.1 is charging REALLY slow, it takes days, help?"That pop sound was more than likely a short somewhere in the charging circuit. I am surprised it still charges at all. The nextbook will need to be opened up in order to find the culprit, probably a resistor or something popped from the short. If you are not familiar with soldering microboards and similar, consult an electronics repair shop or the manufacturer for repairs.

Answer to "Screen suddenly went black. Can hear startup sound, tried everything."It sounds like your Screen died suddenly. They work until they don't anymore.
