    How to tell when its time for a new tablet

    I want to know if my tablet is dying,its a pretty scary thought since I can't afford another one,and this little bugger has served me well for years.

    anyways,it randomly shuts off,(never when I'm actually using it to draw)
    but just to do other stuff(the blue light at the top will disappear and it becomes unresponsive)
    this is easily fixed by plugging out the usb and plugging it back in.

    or is it a problem with my computer usb?(I hope it is)

    for those of you who have lost a tablet,what were the signs?

    I think it sounds like a problem with the USB. I get the same problem with other devices. It could be the USB port on the comp, or the usb jack on the tablet itself. A loose connection. I had usb ports because they get beat up so easilly because it's NEVER clear which way up they go! The ports on my monitor are the oposite way around to the computer, but both are made by DELL. Wtf Dell.

    The fact that it never occurs when you use it though makes it sound like the compter is just being a douche.

    I recommend bleepingcomputer.com for any computer troubles.

    I see,I thought it was the usb it self too,since it seems to be a little funny with other devices.

    Thanks,I'll check out the website that you recommended.
