|The hard drive and RAM have passed diagnostic. I am using F Secure. Gave up on Trend a year or two back. However, F- secure, Trend housecall, Superantispyware, and adaware fail to find anything on the system.|
My system restore disk is currently mia with the XP CD, Dell manual and all the other paper work. I know the importance of them and kept them where they'd be safe. But with the guys helping me move, they appearantly didnt make it.
Anyway, I don't have anything on the laptop that's critical. The important stuff on on the desktop. I didnt know about Dell's retore through ctrl-F11. I ran it, reinstalled F secure, and got rid of the garbage Dell included, and it's running like a charm and right where I need it.
I'm still puzzled about what the problem was. As far as why I didnt just find out wat the problem is, well, it's been undergoing trouble shooting for five months. Even called in a guy that can fix anything windows. He's the guy that most geeks call when theyre stumped.
None the less, it's back where I need it with nthing loss. Thanks for the replies
