How to recover my tablet from W10 upgrade?

I have a big 13" tablet that came from china dirt cheap...

It had windows 8.1 and dual boot into android...

Problem was the 8.1 was Chinese and a pain to understand.. so I switched to windows 10.. Great eh? Nope, the 10 install wiped all the previous 8.1 and the android off it!

Now i have a big 13" useless pice of kit because the touch screen dont work now either.. A finger on the screen highlights anything way off to the left right or above it. Tried the windows calibration but thats just as useless..

I quite fancy linux on it but the touch version is in beta and very complicated to install.

The other option is android again. Anyone point me to a tutorial for installing the latest android..

I'll be looking to see if i can get a decent battery for it as weel as currently it runs hot on the back and a fully charged battery lasts 3 hours...

Ta,
Steve

When my phone got bricked after an update, I took it to carphone warehouse for a factory reset. About 20 quid for the latest version that will work.

I have a samsung tab 's' and updates are handled by the KIES program on my pc. Plug it in to the usb, start Kies and it checks for and applies the updates as necc. If yours didn't come with software for your pc, try finding it online using the tablet's name,model number.

You didn't say what it was so I can't look. My Kies program has an option for reverting to factory settings, so I guess thats how it's done. I don't fancy windows and android on the same machine, windows has always been pretty good at stuffing up on it's own.

If holding down the start up key and tyring various combinations of volume up down keys dosen't put you into a recover boot then just write it off to experience.

I'll have a look. Might sound daft but have you tried asking your local chinese chippy to translate for you? You never know!

Google translate does a half decent job even on Chinese, at least it might show what options you need to be looking for.

However, is this of any use;

Personally I'd take it to a decent phone shop and ask if they can recover it. Some of them are quite good and some have experience of these things. It might cost a few quid to have it done, but you'd have a working tablet.

Thanks, downloaded that but there 10 updates in there, 3 install the rest say the platform is not supported!!

I can hold down the volume key while booting to get the option of windows or android but the keyboard doesn't work then and the touch screen doesn't work either so it always goes into windows....

Going to install Ubuntu on my main PC and see if I can get the touch Linux on the Onda...

Try pressing the volume buttons to navigate the booting/reset menu
