You already used "adb", so access to Settings -> Developer Options must already be enabled and "USB debugging" turned on.
Now, simply connect the tablet to the PC and open a Command Promt (or Terminal if you're on Linux). Issue a restart on the Tablet (if turned on). Once the "Galaxy Tab 2.0" kernel logo shows up issue "adb logcat >> Downloads\logcat.txt" (Windows) or "adb logcat >> Download/logcat.txt" (Linux - you may need to add a "sudo" before adb if your udev rules aren't properly set).
adb will now display "connecting" and once Android has start "adbd", should happen rather early in the boot process, it will start logging into the text file. Once the ROM has fully booted up wait for a minute, so the system settles with starting up everything, before you press CTRL+C to interrupt adb logging.
Next would be "adb shell dmesg >> Downloads\dmesg.txt" (Windows) or "adb shell dmesg >> Downloads/dmesg.txt" (Linux). That dumps the kernel output into a text file. IF you get a error here it may relate to...: 1. Your ROM is not rooted. / 2. "adb+apps" is not set in the Developer options / 3. You are running a Sammy Stock ROM where adbd has no root powers.
If you're on a Stock ROM ... Install Chainfire's adbd Insecure
(you need root!), run the app, apply the patch and reboot. Now adbd behaves like in CM or OMNI (root priviledges).
You can review the text files for yourself. If you see any obvious errors that should give you a hint about what's going on. If not, then put them up for review. Though... be warned: The files contains some private data (like the MAC address of the tablet as well as some information from your WiFi). If you don't want it to be displayed to the greater public send me a PM.
