If you have the system window disk that came with the tablet pc. Then you can try to do a repair on windows. It takes a little know how, but it is not hard if you are up to it. The dos command when you get in the repair function of windows xp setup is FIXBOOT. This might fix it, but if it doesnt or you dont want to try call a local pc technician and they should be able to get it going again.

If you have Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005 installed on it, you can use the Wacom Pen to enter text instesd of type it.
On Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005, there is an Input panel Icon on the tray bar, usually to the left, close to the Start button. Use the pen to click the Input Panel. When it opens showing you a black line on yellowish backround you can start using the pen as if it were on paper. Depending on the pen input setting it will insert automatically or waits for you to press the insert button. However for the converted text to be inserted you need to have a text editing software open (Word Pad for example.)
If when you open the input panel you see a keyboard you can change that to handwriting (continuous line) or typing separate letters.
The computer can be taught to recognize your handwriting: You will need to practice. You might have to download and install the relevant ink recognition package for your language. Look for it on the Microsoft tablet PC page.
Do you have Windows XP with servicepack 3 installed? If so then there is a known problem with the screen driver and XP sp3. Go bakc to SP2 and reinstall de display drivers this should clear the problem.
If anyone has working tident drivers for XP SP3 I would be greatfull!!
I have been installing XP on Portege M200 laptops.
I use a usb floppy to install the latest bios update from Toshiba's support site.
After the update the laptop will boot from a USB Cd/DVD drive.
be patient the first part of the up date goes extreamly slowly but it seems to keep working and the install will work.
try to boot to windows xp or dos command, for winXP go to recovery console-select your windows-type the admin password then if C:\WINDOWS come up type chkdsk /r if that doesnt help, repair your operating system or backup your files and reinstall your operating system.
You should contact Toshiba service and order a recovery CD for that model. You can also install any Windows XP version, but it will not provide support for the tablet functionalities, which means that you will have a notebook that is not a tablet.
Note: Actually the original operating system is Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005: It is Win XP Pro + Tablet PC software.
I have heard that Vista provides support for Tablet functionalities, but you may still have to buy it from Toshiba because of the drivers for the specific hardware.
I installed Linux Ubuntu on a tablet. The latest version of Ubuntu provides some support for the wacom stylus pen, but not much else.
ok you wouldn't have been supplied a recovery cd, you have to create it, to create one have 2 blank dvd discs ready and go to start menu and select help type in a search for recovery cd, this will explain how to create one....if your computer won't load into windows you will have to re-install windows again, cheers, any other probs please get back to me.
