12/8/2009 9:51:46 PM I haven't been able to play a CD or DVD in well over a year. Even though everything is off, the printer makes a sound like it is starting up. The worst complaint is that I am unable to click on links--which makes my life miserable as the computer is my only link to the outside world as I have been houseboundfor years.

5/13/2007 3:03:57 AM noneOne of the biggest mistakes in my life was to buy a cheap computer with Vista installed, I should have carried on with XP as all the pundits were advising me to do and wait for the next system to come out from Windows. Very few of my old hardware,printers, scanners etc are compatible and crash all the time. A lot of the software on the internet such as "Everything" which is a great programme crashes when tryinig to use it, Bring on Windows 7 Robin
