    Okay, I will try to be as clear as possible while trying to decipher some ambiguity. The following 2 codes have been corrected. The first is for portrait mode (height is greater than the width). The second is for landscape mode (width greater than height). To be honest, I'm not sure if portrait calibration will work because I've never tried it. I don't know what will happen if the input coordinates do not much the screen specification range.

    Portrait - Anyways, without changing your X-and-Y coordinates from your picture on Post #83 and your code from Post #78, you should be using the following:

    Code:
    tabcal lincal novalidate XGridPts=10,75,150,225,300,375,450,525,600,675,750,825,890 YgridPts=10,60,160,320,480,640,800,960,1120,1280,1440,1540,1590
    Landscape - However, since you have indicated in post #82, you are using “landscape mode”, your X-and-Y coordinates should be flipped to the original coordinates that you have stated in post #74. The code in landscape should be the following:

    Code:
    tabcal lincal novalidate XGridPts=10,60,160,320,480,640,800,960,1120,1280,1440,1540,1590 YgridPts=10,75,150,225,300,375,450,525,600,675,750,825,890
    Only ONE of these codes should work. Make sure there are no spaces between the numbers, and no spaces on either sides of the "= signs".

    As for taking a screen capture, I believe it should be the following key combination: 'fn + prt sc'. Then you'll have to paste the capture onto an image-editing program like Microsoft Paint or Photoshop, etc.

    <<...As for taking a screen capture...>>

    Although Print Screen performs the desired function, I typically recommend Snip (look in your Program Menu (Win7) or the All Apps view(Win8)). Snip is more flexible than Print Screen.

    Can you verify that you have the tabcal.exe file on your device? Just search for 'tabcal' in the start button.

    EDIT: I mean, tabcal should have already came with your tabletpc. But perhaps the file was deleted by accident somehow...

    I don't have the T902 with me now, what if I can't find the "tabcal.exe"?
    Can I re-install again?
