How do you solve a problem like the Captain?

Friday, November 20, 2009
You restore your computer to its original factory settings and start from scratch.

No singing nuns or dancing through the Swiss Alps though, sorry. I know you're all very disappointed. Trust me though, while I might be able to shake my money maker, you don't want me to attempt to carry a tune.

Remember ALL the computer problems I was having? The blue screen of death, freezing up, shutting down for no reason? Problem after problem after problem? Well, as I mentioned, I ended up becoming so frustrated that I reset my computer to it's factory settings losing EVERYTHING. I then had to spend a week downloading all the updates which had come out since my computer was born, all my extra programs, finding my favourites and saving them once again. Sure it was a lot of hassel and I'm sure I'm still missing something important but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. However, it seems that all of my problems have been solved! Ok, not all my problems but the computer-related ones at least. My computer hasn't "crashed" since the reboot and my canary yellow Dell laptop has been functioning at relatively peak performance! Sigh. Why didn't someone suggest this sooner so I could have avoided all the stress?

Cute photo and I have no idea why some one didnt mention this before. I guess I never thought of it.. I hate when we have to reload the computer to Factory Settings. It takes so dang long here.. My husband knows what he's doing but still its a pain in the butt..

What a pain in the ass. I've had my Dell laptop for 2.5 years and never had a major problem...
