I had some problems with sound and couldn't get anything to fix it. So i rebooted the bootloader and was going to hard reset the device. But i accidently hit the wrong one and it deleted my OS. I don't know how to put android back on and my computer won't detect my device. My bootloader is unlocked and i have Team Win Recovery. What should i do?!

You will need to use the ADB sideload feature of TWRP to upload a rom to install. Research ADB on how to use it as well as the sideload feature of TWRP. You will need to connect the tablet to your PC for this,.

NRT has and does everything you need:

As long as you can get the ADB drivers installed on your PC, you can click Advanced Utilities "Launch," then "Flash Zips" and select a rom zip on your desktop to flash to the tablet.

And as for adb drivers, here is a link to a post by Koush with a driver install that should work without any issues.

I've done what the OP has done, and if I recall, getting the device into download mode will allow Wug's Toolbox to pick it up from there. I reinstalled the OEM rom, rerooted and reinstalled TWRP. You can download the OEM rom from the toolbox.
