I can't do a hard reset on my Nextbook Ares 10a

    The tablet has been extremely slow ever since I bought it over a year ago. So, I disabled a number of apps and it worked much better. This was a couple of weeks ago. I turned it off that evening and ever since, whenever I turn it on it keeps going in a loop saying "updating app #..."

    So I tried to do a hard reset and the boot manager came up. It gave only two options - Android 1a or Android. No matter which one I chose it went back to that loop.

    Is there any way this can be fixed or should I just toss it in the bin? This thing is driving me crazy and I can't believe I paid over $100 for this piece of garbage.

    Thanks!

    I tried to press the power button and "volume up" at the same time but tried "volume down" after I started this video. I selected "recovery mode" and then got that little android robot with the message "no command."

    I think all is lost at this point. Am I wrong? I hope??


    Thanks!

    I kept fooling with the buttons and somehow managed to find "wipe data" and do a reset. I'm back in business again. Thanks!

    For awhile I thought I'd have to either throw it in the bin or use it as a very pricey paperweight!
