    I updated some apps. My screen is now frozen and I can't use the tablet. I tried to use the recessed reset button, but nothing happens when I use a paper clip to push the recessed button in....any suggestions other than taking it back to Best Buy to have the GeekSquad check it out. It's insured.

    So its frozen on? And the reset wont do anything. Is it still under warranty if so I would return it and get another one. If it isn't then I'm not sure the reset should work.

    Are you just pushing the button or are you putting the paper clip in and holding it.
    Almost all resets have to be held for 30 to 60 seconds for the reset to take effect.
