Android 3.2 Crashed! Cannot remove battery!

    Hey, I've been using a Ainol Novo7 tablet for the day and I put a Settings icon widget on my screen. I clicked it, and Android crashed - just a blank screen.

    The only problem is, I cannot remove the battery (the back doesn't come off). I've tried holding the power button down, plugging it in to my PC. But, nothing...

    I know it's still on. The back is quite warm and there is a white pixel on the screen.

    Is there anything I can do? Or do I just need to let the battery run itself down (which will take a while, the battery lasts quite a while)?

    I've found that any device with a non-removable battery has a reset button somewhere, almost always in a little tiny pin-prick of a hole.

    I thought that reset the Hard Drive?
    Maybe not... Never had a tab' before and the manual that came with it is Chinese.

    Look in the back of the manual, it might be written in French there. Sorry I know that isn't helpful. Any chance of finding an english version of the manual online?

    Hope this is use to someone in the future :)
