My poor tablet is literally on life support.� Something's wrong with the graphics card, or the drivers, whatever... most of the time it boots with garbled graphics, scrambled beyond legibility. It took about thirty attempts to get it to boot clean and draw this.
The solution, thus far, has been to leave it in standby, to avoid booting.� Hence... life support.
Yes, it's a House MD joke. It's even sillier when you realize how often tablets like mine have been used as props on the show.
