    Sorry to hear that. At this point I'd try a 'pin-in-the-hole' hard reset (not sure if it's any different to restarting from power menu, but you never know). If you still have no joy, I'd do a full system reset/restore and set up from scratch (do the ASUS LiveUpdate of the Drivers only at first, then do all other updates).

    If you didn't have the latest driver for the sound module, then I suspect that when you originally ran ASUS LiveUpdate the driver install didn't happen properly. So no telling what other drivers may not be updated.

    On the top of the tablet on the opposite side to the power button is a small hole. Insert a bent paper clip or the like into this and press. This is the equivalent of the Reset button on a desktop.

    NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. That's the microphone! The reset hole is on the right side under the volume rocker. Also be careful when using it to not miss the button and end up shorting something inside. Its not very deep

    That's exactly what I ended up doing, and I did take pictures!

    Would someone be kind enough to direct me to the driver installation package and updated bios? I've gone through all 22 pages of the thread but seem to be missing it.

    I am receiving this tablet today. It sounds like there are some growing pains. I assume there is a way of making a recovery, either a DVD or a flash drive, before I attempt anything? Do you recommend updating live update first, or skip that and do the driver package? Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks!

    The TF810C has a built in factory restore image, so should the Vivo Smart.
