Well, I have removed my SD card and deleted all the files on the internal sdcard folder, but I still have the problem. So, just how do I do a factory data reset? Is that done by pressing the pinhole button that is next to the usb port? And will this totally reset my tablet back to Honeycomb or will it stay on ICS? And will I have to totally reinstall all my apps and wigets? I've spent so much time getting my tablet set up how I want it... I'd hate to have to go through that all again, but I guess if I have to do that, then I will.
