It wont reconize half my memory so it wont let me download apps
It has very limited memory allocated for apps. It only amounts to about 661 megabytes. The entire SD card shows about 5.5 gigabytes most of which will probably be available for whatever but not for apps. Apps can only be written to the small app partition.
The unfortunate reality is if you allow automatic updates from the Google Store to update the native apps, there will NOT be enough room for them all and you will get a *no more space available* error message. So, turn off automatic updates in Settings in the Store ASAP! If you install an external microSD card in the slot in the back you might be able to move some of your apps to it using the Apps function in Settings on your tablet. This will free us some extra space on the built-in SD card. But, unfortunately, the native apps can't be moved. But, some can be disabled and some you can delete the data and the cache. But, don't delete the data on the ones you use or all your mail, accounts etc will go away and you'll just have to set it up and download mail again.

Nobis tablet won't boot
Join the crowd. Lots of people have problems with these.
1) make sure the battery is charged
2) push the power button and hold it until you see the Nobis screen
3) if you don't see the Nobis Screen go to step 6)
4) if you do see the Nobis screen wait a minute and it should proceed to the *GO* screen. If it stays stuck on the go screen forever, you have a problem. You might or might not be able to fix it.
5) on the stuck on Go screen take a paperclip and push on the reset button slowly increasing the force until you feel it click. Release it. Now wait a minute or so. If it doesn't start going through the boot up by itself, push the power button until the Nobis screen comes on again. Wait for it to go into the GO screen again and give it several minutes to boot to the home screen. If it never does you need to take more drastic actions.
6) Turn it off by holding the power button down long enough for the screen to go black. Then push the power button and the volume (-) button and hold them. Keep holding them. It should cycle through a Nobis screen then a blank screen and finally a screen with green writing on it. Release both buttons.
7) Use the power (+) button to cycle through the options.
8) Scroll to *Wipe all data/ factory reset* or similar.
9) Select it using a short push of the power button.
10) You will be given a second chance to change your mind when a screen comes up with a bunch of no no no no's and one reset option. Use the power button (+) to scroll down to the reset choice.
11) Once there, click the power button and it will wipe all the data and when its done wiping data it will be on the reboot option. Click the power button.
(I am typing the above from memory and some of it could lack total accuracy but the process in intuitive so if you detect any variances go with the flow.)
Now, you can hope and pray it was a software and not a hardware problem. If it's a software problem it should reboot into the original configuration and every change or addition you made to it will be gone. Then you can start over again. Here's a clue. The space on the SD card for apps is SMALL and easily filled. When you first connect to Wi-Fi immediately go to the Google Store and select settings. Choose the option to NOT auto update. Auto update replaces the stock apps with the updated versions which are MUCH larger and they will not fit into the limited space. Only manually update those apps you will be using such as email, chrome etc. Leave the rest as the smaller originals which will still work.
Hint: When you first connect to the Store it might be balky because it's using the original (old) store app. Be patient as it will be updating Google Services (large) and Google Store in the background. You might be able to get to *Settings* to turn off auto updates right away or it might take a minute or two for the settings option to appear. Turn off auto updates as soon as you can to stop it from updating everything.
If it's a hardware problem, and it's still in warranty you can send it back for repair. See your little owners manual for the website which will take you to a new website using a different name. State your problem and they will reply to you via e-mail. I had to send mine back because the internal SD card went bad and it wouldn't remember any changes and it couldn't download anything because there was no place for it download it to. They fixed it and sent in back in two weeks and it's now working like new again. No charge as mine was less than a month old when it crapped out. It did cost me the postage to send it in - about fifteen bucks.
I hope I was able to be of assistance. I like my little Nobis despite the problems I've had with it. Just yesterday a bunch of processes commenced stopping. Pop-ups would appear saying this and that process had stopped and nothing would work. I tried the reset button on the back with no success. I had to go through the above described factory reset again and it came back to original on the reboot and seems to be itself again. So, it was a software problem this time whereas last time it was a hardware problem.
Ah, the delight of computers!

Having trouble download apps to nobis tablet it keep frozng
Does this have an SD card installed? If so it might be corrupted or failing. If not, try a hard shutdown or of you have access to battery area remove battery for a minute then reinstall battery and power tablet back up. One other option would be to go into download and delete any failed downloads and try them again.
