I have an aging IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad X61. This week a series of problems it was having started to seem insurmountable, and I decided to backup my files, restore to factory condition, and have done with it. I'm starting to regret that choice.
The recovery disks that came with my computer installed Windows XP Professional edition, not Windows XP Tablet edition. In all respects now, my tablet is just a regular Thinkpad with a weird hinge. It doesn't recognize the digitizer pen, nor does it recognize the touchscreen, even though both are listed on the device manager, both have up-to-date drivers, and both claim to be functioning fine. Also, no Microsoft Journal, which I desperately need, and no sticky notes.
Please tell me there's a free way to fix this!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi Icarus, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
ThinkPads don't normally ship with recovery disks. You should have been prompted make your own when the system was new. Apparently your vendor included the wrong set .
Either contact your vendor, or call Lenovo support to get the XP Tablet Edition disks (you may have to pay ~$50).

Tablet PC support, Journal, and Sticky Notes are included in the Home Premium and higher versions of Windows 7.
