I was playing "Asphalt 8: Airborne" game from the Windows Store when the Iconia W4 suddenly froze and the graphics on the screen distorted. I powered off the tablet by holding down the power button. Now when I power it on, it does not boot up. The green light next to the power button blinks in an inconsistent pattern and it keeps going on like this. I can then power it off by holding the power button. The display stays blank. There is no Acer logo. I cannot enter the bios by holding the Volume UP while pressing the power button. I have also tried a hard reset by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole but it made no difference. The tablet simply does not boot up. I have also tried holding the power button down for 30 secs. That also made no difference.
I cannot avail the warranty.
Suggestions what could have caused this? Solutions?
