The re-installation is an equivalent of a Hard Reset. Meaning, all of your applications, photos and other files on the Tablet will be deleted and you have to start from scratch to have them back.

On this particular Tablet, there's no recovery option using the button press combination. Instead, you will need to connect it to your computer and use a flashing software called livesuite and install an updated or existing firmware in order to perform a Hard Reset.
