Tablet won't turn on. Tried the manufacture reset but it won't come out the startup screen. Tried the volume + and pwr button to wipe clean as well. Still no luck.

I have done what you have suggested buy it didn't help. the tablet attempts to turn on but the HP logo comes up with the sweeping colored arches and that is all it does. It will not go to the next screen.
any other thoughts?
