I've been a long time lurker here, but decided to start a thread given my situation.
Yesterday, I used my touchpad in the morning just fine. When I picked it up in the afternoon, it looked shut off and unresponsive. I've tried everything outlined in other threads: charged it overnight, power button, power + center for 15 seconds, power + center + volume up for 15 seconds. I checked the charger to make sure it is secure, and tried to run WebOS doctor, but my computer does not detect the device when i plug it in.
I spent 30 minutes on the phone with HP and they finally decided that I need to send it in for repair.
My concern is that when I received the tablet, I installed the basic patches and overclocked to 1.5 ghz as outlined in the "getting started" sticky. Since I am unable to launch WebOS, I can't restore the unit back. I was wondering what folk's thoughts were about the impact of sending in an overclocked unit back to HP, given that it technically voids the warranty.
