Hi Nonna and welcome to Android Forums!
So your gTab won't turn on at all normally? Sounds like the ROM is corrupt and will need to be re-flashed. If you still have the Clemsin Caulkin Froyo ROM on the SD card, then it's an easy fix. If not, explore the "All Things Root" section and find yourself a couple of ROMs you want to try (and any associated Google Apps or Gapps zips). Download and move them onto the microSD card with a PC, making sure they're not in any folder.
I believe that your ROM is a 1.1 ROM... so any of the 1.1 ROMs will do.
important to know the exact ROM you were on, so we know if you're on a 1.1 or a 1.2 bootloader. Trying to flash a 1.2 ROM with a 1.1 bootloader would be BAD
. Trust me.
When you have the ROM and Gapps (I would suggest several on the SD card in case the first one is bad or the gTab doesn;t like it), re-insert the card into the gTab and go into Recovery. Wipe data/factory reset and install the zip. Choose zip and select the ROM you want to try and let it load. Then reboot system and cross your fingers. The first boot-up will take a long time, so have a good charge on the battery (or have it plugged in) and be patient.
If it fails to boot up to the Android Welcome screen in about 10 minutes, turn it off, go back into Recovery and repeat the process with another ROM.
And please let us know if this fixes it. Hope this helps and it's nice to have you aboard
