The troubleshooting process for fixing a frozen tablet depends on the brand, but most tablets can be reset by shutting down through the task manager or through a hard reboot, states HP Customer Support and For Dummies. If shutting down and restarting the tablet does not solve the problem, the tablet may require a factory reset. Consult the manufacturer with questions.
