MacTechTrainer :

Hello and thank you for asking your question, with JustAnswer.com/Mac. I am Sr. Mac Tech Support Specialist, Terry, glad to assist you.

MacTechTrainer :

As a professional Mac technician, I like to take more of a personable, personal approach, toward helping any valued JustAnswer.com customers, I am fortunate to assist.

MacTechTrainer :

On that note, may I start by asking your first name?

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

George

MacTechTrainer :

Greetings to you George, again I am Terry, Sr. Mac Support Specialist, at your service sir!

MacTechTrainer :

Is this the 2nd time you have attempted to set up your iPad 2, only to have it stop at a certain point like thi?

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

Great, now can you help an old dodder to get his iPad 2 to start up, ?

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

Yes, what happens is it starts and get nto select the language and just sits nthere till it switches off.

MacTechTrainer :

Pleasure would be mine George.

MacTechTrainer :

Just a few questions if I may,

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

Sure fire away

MacTechTrainer :

thanks- First, is your iPad connected to a desktop computer or notebook computer that has the iTunes application installed?

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

Oops, now there is a thing I didn't know it had to be connected to anything, I can connect it to this laptop I am using now if that is OK

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

note, I dodn't use I tunes , does that matter ?

MacTechTrainer :

Yes- and I think this may be a step in the right direction for completing this iPad set up process for you George

MacTechTrainer :

I say this because iTunes, Apple's primary music and media application, is designed to allow you to import music, videos, podcasts, ebooks, audiobooks and so much more,

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

right I have plugged it into yhis lap top, now what ?

MacTechTrainer :

from the iTunes library into your iPad 2

MacTechTrainer :

furthermore it is very important in that iTunes will back up all of the data you do import into your iPad 2, each time you perform what is called a synchronization or importing, of your data from iTunes into your iPad 2 and back

MacTechTrainer :

So now,

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

sorry it is still blank do you wish me to switch on the i pad ?

MacTechTrainer :

I need to ask real quick, are you using a PC or Apple notebook?

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

no it is a dell studio 17

MacTechTrainer :

Disconnect the iPad 2 for the moment George

MacTechTrainer :

Good, I can help you with your Dell Studio 17, first

MacTechTrainer :

in regards to getting iTunes installed on the laptop first

MacTechTrainer :

then I will have you reconnect your iPad 2 back to your laptop

MacTechTrainer :

Let me get the link for you to download iTunes first sir.

MacTechTrainer :

Will be back in a moment

MacTechTrainer :

Just click this link below George, and I will help you get iTunes installed on your Dell

MacTechTrainer :

Do you need my assistance step-by-step in installing this iTunes program?

MacTechTrainer :

If so, let me start by providing you this great online instruction guide complete with screen shot pictures that show you exactly how to install iTunes on your Dell PC, step-by-step:

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

don.t know, have done as requested hope the donwnload is complete, do you want me to ckeck again that is is there ?

MacTechTrainer :

I would actually recommend from that point where you are now George, to click on the link I just provided

MacTechTrainer :

above, and follow the steps to successfully installing iTunes on your PC

JACUSTOMER-3gtit11p- :

seems all has got stuck again nothing has happened the pad is still sitting on language wselect

MacTechTrainer :

Have you already installed iTunes successfully George?

MacTechTrainer :

I need to make sure you have that program installed on your Dell first

MacTechTrainer :

I also wanted to make sure your iPad is disconnected from your PC for now

MacTechTrainer :

just until iTunes is fully installed and open. Then I can direct you when to reconnect your iPad 2

MacTechTrainer :

so please confirm for me at this time, were you successful in installing the iTunes program?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
