    ipad going crazy

    my ipad keeps going crazy! I have shut it down three times now and it keeps going haywire on me. went to the settings to see if it needed updating and it says it is updated. Has anybody else have this problem? It's a first gen.

    How long do ipads last? Is it about to die on me?

    What does crazy mean?

    Describe the behavior as best you can, when it started, was it progressive or sudden....etc.
    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    i will be playing a game or something else then it will jump start typing on its own then jump to the internet and go to different sites on its own. then i would try to shut it down and it wont respond then it will go to my picture s and start the slide show. pages jump around. it acts like it has a virus but from everything i googled you cant get a virus on ipads.

    We had another member here who had the same problem. They even posted a video. Dang, that thing was possessed!

    The only advice we could give was to go and show it to the Geniuses at the Apple store. Cause there is definitely something wrong with it. so, that's my recommendation to you.

    Good luck.

    Ok let's try a pseudo lobotomy of the iPad and see if it helps....

    From your iPad desktop double tap the home button. A shelf will appear with recently used application icons on it. There may be one or many depending upon several factors. Regardless of how many appear long press any one of them until it begins to wobble and a red minus sign appears on the icons. Now release and tap the red minus sign on each icon until all of them are gone. You can only do one at a time so be patient and get them all. Once they are all gone press the home key and the shelf vanishes. You have just cleared iPad RAM (memory) and are ready to power cycle with no apps running in the background. (factory Setting). The apps have NOT been deleted, they remain on your desktop for future use.

    Now long press the power button until the power slider appears. When it appears swipe right through it and the ipad will perform a controlled shutdown. A spinning icon will appear in the center of the screen. When it vanishes the ipad is powered off. It may take a moment or two for the spinning icon to vanish. This is normal, and in your case likely a good sign if it takes a moment or two before it shuts down.

    Once in a powered down state long press the power button until the apple logo appears then release. Once restarted test your apps and let us know if behavior has improved.

    Then I would follow Marilyn's advice and take it back to the store. It seems like you have tried all you can on your own.
