Screen problem? can you connect to an external monitor?

First plug in an external Monitor and try that to see if you get a picture.

Depending on the laptop, look for a F Key with a small screen on it, use that and either shift,Ctrl or Alt to switch to an external screen, these are usually toggle switches so do it again and you revert to the in-built screen.

If that works download SIW.EXE which is stands for System Information Windows (Diagnostic tool) and look under Software, or BELARC will give similar results but a easier to understand layout,with less info.

They should both run from a USB stick

It could be a C100, or a number of others, which although described as a tablet is more like a netbook.

I'm surprised that the serial number, etc is missing from the bottom of the case.
