Any attempt to work with google software on a fire will not be supported by Amazon and any damage caused is not under warranty. These devices are NOT designed to be repaired. It's often more expensive than buying a new one. Chalk it up to experience. Just buy what you need and forget this one. Note -- it's well known that fires do not have Google abilities.

Trash it, hard lesson learned .... these are throwaway items ...
Literally trashing it would be irresponsible and in many areas illegal (due to the lithium ion battery). Taking it in for electronic recycling (such as to the Best Buy mentioned) would be the proper method.
"this tablet dont have google play store and unable install any vircus program, I try my best fellow all the step to install google play store, not sucess but end up my tablet have hardware problem,"
With respect, I strongly suggest you take an introductory computer course of some sort or read a book or two. You do not really seem to have any understanding of these things at all and this will continue to lead you into problems.
" try to contact best buy for repair but my tablet is not buy from best buy and no warranty, best buy wont take the responsibility to repair " Why should they? Take it back to wherever you bought it. If you bought it from some shady guy at a swap meet or such well, you saved money I suppose.
Next time, by one from Amazon.ca and save yourself a ton of hassles. Amazon is pretty good about warranty as long as you didn't try to pry open the case or something equally...well not bright. And don't try to load stuff that wasn't meant to go just because you saw someone on the Internet claim it was easy. Those people won't be there to help you fix things if something goes wrong.
If you want or need Google Play, buy an Android tablet. There's hundreds to choose from at any price point you could reasonably expect down to about $30 US.

Thank you so much for your advice, actually I buy this tablet at amazon, the problem is lots of seller dont ship to canada, they only ship at usa, so I just order it , before i buy this tablet, I have think of to buy apple ipad or andorid tablet that is excellent , but apple mini ipad even its like at least more than 400 hundred, that is out of my budget, but this tablet only cost me 80 dollar plus tax and the case 130 dollar only for total thats the reason i choose this tablet, and be honest I feel the original warrantly is not necessary, because when its phyiscial damge wont cover the cost, my traditional method take to store to repair is much more easiler, the reason I buy this amazon tablet is to replace my hp business laptop that is 3 yr old have hard ware problem and my desktop have drop recently have so much problem even after repair never think of its my first try to buy a cheap tablet the result turn out is so bad, and its too expensive to replace a new desktop or laptop, dont have any idea what can i do now? any good suggestion hope u can reply me
