late last week i was notified that there was an update for the kernel i was using. I downloaded it and all hell broke loose. The shut down menu was no more... luna restart, restart, shut down, ect were all gone. The following night as i was playing angry birds hd the sound out of no where started turning up. The Volume icon stayed on the screen perminently. I went into settings and turned down the volume only to see it move right back up to max. I decided to let the battery run out as i thought that might fix the problem, but boy was i wrong. I tried charging it and it would charge a few percent and then go into usb mode. a usb logo would show on the screen constantly. I tried rebooting to no avail using the top button and the center button, but all it did was restart, show the hp logo for 1/4 second and then show the usb logo again.
Whenever i try charging it 9/10 it goes straight to usb mode even when its plugged into the wall. I was able to get it up to 21% the other day but no further. webosdoctor requires at least 25% so i cant even use that program currently. is my touchpad permabricked?
edit: I really want to get this thing figured out as quickly as possible if possible. I have very little energy due to the fact i am recovering from cancer. I dont leave the house so my friends bought me this thing as a way to stay in touch. will paypal 15$ to the person who finally fixes this thing for me. srs
