That wont do him any good now that he has tried to reinstall XP.
Try entering the BIOS by tapping either F1 or F2 when you first push the power button. There should be a HARD DRIVE self test somewhere in there. Perhaps a Diagnostic or Tools section.
If it passes that see if there is a mem (RAM) test. You might have to take the mem out and test one at a time.
There is a known issue with some tablet notebooks that if you turn it off the the screen in one position and then turn it back on with the screen in the other the keyboard and touchpad don't work.
Also before you ever resort to a reinstall, try getting a command prompt up and run sfc /scannow.
