I've recently purchased from Ebay a Samsung ATIV 3 running Windows 8. During a 182 updates it failed but did install 103 updates. 79 to go so I restarted but decided to perform only 10 updates at a time. All of these updates took most of the day to run so I left the tablet on overnight running an install of 10 updates, it seemed to stick at 2 of 10. Got up this morning and all I get is the power LEDS, a blank screen and nothing else. I've tried button combinations (power switch pressed simultaneously with volume up and down for 10, 15, 30 and 60 seconds. No combination worked. I also tried different combinations using the Windows button... Nothing. The charger is working and the battery was at 100%

Any help would be really appreciated.
 
Try the following and see if it will turn on.

1. First make sure the device has been charged.
2. Unplug your charger cord.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds and see if the device will turn on.
5. If it does, great, now plug back in the power/charger cord. (If it didn't turn on without the cord in, it should turn on once you it is in. Yes sometimes they will turn on, or try to turn on, even with nothing attached/plugged in.)
6. Now put the battery back in.
