What caused your Satellite Tablet PC to break down?
I have no idea. That night I already noticed that the PC ran much slower than usual, but I have never expected to get a blue screen in the middle of browsing a folder. After that it shut itself down and when I turned it on again I only get black screen. I tried waiting for a while, and then some kind of progress bar appeared at the bottom along with some text. I forgot the exact text, but it read something like "Cannot start windows because the following file is either missing or corrupt: C:\WINDOWS\System32"

Fortunately, I had no important files there. I've been saving every file from that PC in external HDD. So if matters get to the worst and it needs to reinstall, there will be no loss.

What is MSI?

"Cannot start Windows because the following file is missing or corrupt: C:\WINDOWS\System32"....
Seeing how the computer was running slower than it should have been before it died, Im thinking it could have been a virus or the hard drive dying.

Good to hear no important files were lost though. I had a close call with my dying hard drive I mentioned earlier, as I just got all my backed up videos off it before it started acting up.

MSI is called "Micro Star International" and they are a manufacturer of computer motherboards, netbooks, and laptops. I was talking with zoo_keeper on Messenger one time about my Toshiba Satellite, and we both figured that MSI is a OEM manufacturer for Toshiba, as my Satellite laptop is very similar to a certain model of MSI laptop that zoo_keeper was talking to me about.

Sandy- that sounds like a hard disk problem. To be specific, the hard disk is dying. Don't worry, this happens to everyone sooner or later. It's part of the experience of owning a computer and the reason prople make backups on CDR/DVD and keep copies of their stuff on flash drives and external hard disks. It's very trivial to fix yourself, since on most laptops the hard disk is on a tray that can be pulled out after removing four screws. But it costs a bit of money - you'll need to buy a new hard disk. You will also need some patience since you will need to reinstall Windows, and if it's your first time doing this you will end up reinstalling Windows a couple of times to get it right.

Glad to hear nothing was lost tho.

Well, actually, a MSI technician told me upfront that they build laptops for Toshiba Tongue What they do is they make a laptop without any brands on it, and Toshiba just buy the laptops in bulk, slap on their brand stickers and customized software, then resell it.

I think the computer repair shop Sandy took the Satellite to should be able to do that. But since it's a tablet PC, they would have to go to the Toshiba website and find the proper drivers for his specific model.

Oh, Sandy (I hope it's alright to call you that since I haven't addressed you by name before), if you do end up replacing the hard drive yourself, try to locate the OS restore discs that came with your Satellite. It would install a copy of Windows that is six years behind in updates, but it would restore the proper drivers and the Windows build for your Satellite. The additional Windows Updates shouldn't take too long to download and install if you have a fast connection. If you did upgrade to a newer version of Windows later on though, you may have to reinstall from scratch and locate your Satellite's drivers off the Toshiba website.

BTW, what were the specs of the old Satellite? (processor speed, RAM, etc)

So, in other words, some of them Satellites are actually rebranded Micro-Star PCs?

Well, whoever made this can't count to two and see there are two pancakes.
But I digress.
