Couple of questions for you:


1) How did you reinstall windows? Did you use the IBM Recovery CDs *, Reload the OS with F11 *,  or install a market version of XP Tablet?


* I'd highly recommend using the original IBM image to ensure there are no issues with drivers!!


2) Did you update all the Tablet drivers? If not, go to this website to install the driver:




You may want to also use the ThinkVantage System Update Tool to check for missing drivers


(Start->Programs->ThinkVantage->System Update)


- If you don't have our original preload installed, download this utility from here:

- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=TVSU-UPDATE


This should at least get you started.
