  • Dropped Tablet - Asus Transformer Pad TF300T


    An ASUS Tablet (Model TF300t) has been dropped, obviously not going to be covered under warranty

    Tablet didnt work for first attempt at starting however now has started but running unusably slow.

    Needing suggestions on repairs or diagnosing?

    They work on SSD drives otherwise I would assume its the storage thats gone caput.

    Any ideas would be much appreciate,
    p.s: wasn't sure where to post tablet related issues, sorry

    Could be anything really seeing as it has been dropped.

    Is the damage bad?

    Could be the main board, something dislodged.

      You would expect a device with only solid state components to either work or not work after being dropped. Components like the CPU and the memory chips don't get slower as they age, they either continue to perform according to specs, of errors creep in which could cause instability or data corruption, but not a general slowdown.

      However, many electronic components require cooling, and some of those components contain temperature sensors connected to circuitry that can throttle the operating frequency of the chip if the temperature exceeds a certain threshold. The idea is that it's better to have the device slow down rather than risking physical, permanent damage due to overheating.

      A dislodged heat sink could cause symptoms like those you describe.
