Cracking a tablet in two

The battles with my new HP tablet continue. I sent the first one back as it kept crashing when connected to my wireless network. A new one arrived a few days later which seemed better - maybe one crash a day instead of ten. But now it's failing to boot completely - it just get a little way through and then loops endlessly. I've put it on diagnostic boot, it gets as far as checking memory and that's it. So another one bites the dust. It's strange because I've had a lot of new gadgets over the last few years, whether it's phones, ipods, laptops, desktops, cameras or whatever, and this is the first one that's broken ever. That's not to say that I haven't had frustrating times with phones (anyone for a Nokia 6210 or even the early 6310s?), but this is the first one that's plain and simple given up the ghost.
