Frequently asked questions and answers
I tried to format my Lamina tablet and it’s now missing drivers.
Please do NOT try to format and reinstall Windows 8.1 (or Windows 10) by yourself. This is NOT supported by Lamina products due to licensing rights. If you have, contact your Lamina dealer to have your unit restored. It is not possible to install a regular Windows 8.1 downloaded from Microsoft’s website. It will not work due to several issues, wherein the license key is one and the drivers another. Your Lamina dealer can of course reflash your unit to make it usable again.
What do I do if there is not enough disk space to install Windows security updates?
Try cleaning out your temporary files. Search for “Free up disk space on this computer ‘and check if there are any app that is unreasonable – If so, remove it before you try to install the updates. Also empty the cached files from your browsing history, and perform a disk cleanup. Search for “Free up disk space by deleting unneeded files” and select the appropriate option to remove (eg “Temporary Internet Files”, “Downloaded Program Files” and “trash“).
If removing your temporary files is not enough, then do a total reset of your Lamina by opening the start menu, and search for “Recovery options,” choose “Remove everything and reinstall Windows,” and then follow the onscreen instructions. Choose “Clear the computer completely” when the option is given. When the tablet is restored, go to Windows Update (“Settings” -> “Update“) and install the updates that are available. Next, reinstall the apps you use. Do not forget that your Lamina should be connected to the charger if you do this.
The tablet won’t start when I push the power button.
The tablet might be set to the sleep mode. Try to push and hold the power button for 10 seconds to shut it off, and then push the power button again to turn it on.

Does the Lamina T801BR or T1001BM support SIM-cards?
No, none of these models supports SIM-cards. Unfortunately, there have been a misprint in the manual to them, whereby it can be seen that there is support for SIM cards, but that is not the case. We apologize for this typographical error.
My Lamina is talking when I click on icons, and marks them out with a blue frame. How do I turn this off?
You have turned on the Windows screen reader, which is a tool to support those with poor eyesight. To disable this mode, press and hold the Windows Home button, while at the same time pressing the volume up button. This will turn off the screen reader mode and change your Lamina back to normal.
