Try uninstalling the ink files. Go to the Control Panel/Programs and
Features, click the line to turn windows features on or off. Uncheck the
Tablet PC box, then apply/ok your way out. Reboot, then reinstall those
components. See if this helps. If it does not, as the system is brand new,
you need to contact the manufacturer as you may have a faulty installation
or a hardware (most likely hard drive or memory) problem.
