And here I are with a wooden table, a 21" TV, the modem and cable box plus my two year old laptop. Just added another four gigs of ram and looking for something more up to date. Gonna be some time before I get to that point. But...i'm not complaining.
BTW: Got another smaller player in the works. Planning on docks and maybe a rainlendar.
Sounds good... more Steampunk stuff. Me likey.
However, I'm not the happiest camper at the moment. I'm back on the HP 2-in-1 until I figure out why I can't get into Windows. I was removing things I no longer needed or would use and needed to do a reboot after uninstalling Windows Live Essentials. When the PC rebooted everything fired up as usual, and I got the Windows screen with the little twirly thing, then nothing, just a blank screen and the monitor telling me there's no connection.
Now I don't know if it's because the graphics card isn't sending the signal, or whether Windows can't boot properly. As far as I know, all the files are there on C Drive, but I can't get into the system to do a restore to see if a graphics card driver update may be responsible. Thing is, the machine booted perfectly twice after the update, so I don't know if it has anything to do with it. Everything was okay until I uninstalled Windows Live Essentials and a dialog box came up to say the machine needed to be rebooted to complete the process.
After that there was nothing but the login screen and then blank. I tried using the installation disc but none of the available options have helped restore Windows. It's like Windows isn't there when I try the System Restore and Recovery Disc options. Acronis was of no help, either. It keeps producing an error message every time I try to reload the most recent images.
Yup, I might be up for a reformat, which mightn't be so bad because it is an older installation. I'd rather not have to at this stage, with so many things on the go, but a fresh install wouldn't hurt, I guess.
