    tomtheweirdguy,

    Thank you for your suggestion. I finally found out what the problem was! The hard drive was failing and in fact it failed completely last night. :mad:

    Fortunately before if failed, I was able to back up my data using Acronis, that is after resintalling Vista via the OS DVD provided by Gateway on my C
    partition. Lost all the factory installed stuff that came with the tablet though.:(

    I have ordered a new HD and expecting this tomorrow to make the change.

    I guess you are wondering why did I not send it back to Gateway. Well I am in the UK and it would have cost me the same as a new HD to ship it back to the my mum's address for Gateway to pick up and repair. Not worth the cost and the potental loss of use (time wise) IMHO!

    Thank you to all who helped out!

    PS: Used the opportuntity to buy a bigger WD HD :)

    That sucks that you had to replace your hard drive so soon, but at least you got your data back and congrats on the bigger capacity!
