Pain
« on: March 19, 2015, 12:47:07 PM »
I had a update from Windows last week & it totally knackered my laptop, it would come on & I could log in but then I got a dark screen, ' the black screen of death ' . I could not get into safe mode or the bios to rectify the problem but eventually I found a way to get enough of the desktop to back all my files up to my external hard drive. This took most of the day as everything took 10 times as long. Eventually I managed to format it & reinstall Windows But then when I started it up it run for about a minute & then turned itself off giving me a light blue screen with a sad face on it . Eventually I figured it was the wifi driver that was corrupt & if I disabled it ( within a minute ) the laptop would stay on but then I had no Wi~Fi. So I hard wired it to my router & downloaded new drivers & installed them replacing the corrupt ones. So far it seems ok but it's been a real headache just because of a windows update!  >:(

Your very uninformed Peter, I've spoken to Vic Parsons this morning & he had the same problem when he was in the UK last week, luckily his son is a computer engineer & he managed to fix it. He only bought his computer last year brand new, he also told me that Jim Pike updated his yesterday & now his has gone. Jim bought his laptop brand new less than 6 months ago..

I barely noticed when I upgraded a couple of days ago... just a restart required.  ;D
