your best bet is to backup your actual data on the tablet. Then do a fresh install (formating the drive) instead of repairing. This should let the install go through 100%. If it doesnt then i would look into it being a HD issue. But its better to do the fresh install first. Usually does the trick

After reading the BIOS software, my Gateway CX200X gives the message: MBR error. what is this?
MBR stands for Master Boot Record. It is an essential piece of information written on the Hard Drive that allows the program to load. If the MBR is corrupted the computer boot process cannot proceed.
You have to repair it.
On old systems with a floppy drive you would get a Win98 boot disk on a floppy, boot the system using the A:drive (floppy) then use a DOS command to refresh the Master Boot Record.
If your system is using Windows XP tablet PC edition you might be able to use the installation disk to boot to the recovery console and use the command FIXBOOT or FIXMBR. You can also reinstall the Operating System.
I hope this answer gave you some starting point to investigate further. There are on the web some software vendors who sell system recuperation CDs. Some may be free other you have to buy.

My laptop wont connect to the internet
I would hook your laptop up directly to your broadband modem and bypass your router to rule it out. Plug the network cable from your modem into your laptop. Unplug the power on your broadband modem and plug it back in. Restart your laptop and see if you get on-line.
If you can...your router is the issue. If you cannot....I would check with your internet service provider before troubleshooting further.
