I am a newbie, please welcome, :-)
Straight to why I am here..
I recently got a MC F5 on eBay.
Almost instantly flashed it with BIOS version B02.
All went well until a few days ago when the tablet won't come up after hibernation.. I had to force shut it down.
When I brought it up back again, it prompted me for a password which I have never did set before!
The prompt reads like.. "Setup is access protected. Password:" and this comes up with still the MC logo displayed in the background almost within few seconds after I turn it ON. It seems like an issue stated under 'Fixes in this Release' of Motion's site at /drivers/C5/C5_F5_BIOS_A11_RN.htm
I tried Phoenix BIOS recovery as per Shuflie's thread "Failed BIOS flash on C5".. but nothing changed.
Just need some ideas from you guys.. does this sound like a BIOS password prompt or a HDD Lock?
What else can be tried (other than sending it to USA from NL (Or) opening up the case, which I want to save it for later if I have to!)?
