Answer to: Why won't my Hp Stream 7 turn on?Hey Brennan! Sorry to hear about your struggle, but I think I have some ideas that could help! - Try charging your device. It's most likely dead and a little charge could do the trick - Try Changing the screen. While opening the device, look for any connections that need to be reconnected or clean. - Water damage is a possibility. If you have soaked your device recently, you may have some luck dissembling it, and soaking the parts in rice or salt; neither will guarantee your device will work when put back together, but success stories have brought devices back from the dead. Best of luck!
Answer to: Why Is My Screen Response Lagging?Screens are very sensitive and sometimes the smallest things will throw off the calibration and the LCD screen. Try shutting down the device, and once the tablet is powered off, take a soft towel and gently clean off the screen. Remove any dust or dirt on the screen and clean until satisfied. Once the screen is clean, power on the device. A good cleaning and a restart may be all the device needs.
