The blue screen of death...
I can't believe it. just when Jan and I had whipped Vista into some semblance of working order, IT STRIKES BACK!
To be fair it was my own fault. I tried to add a new wireless keyboard, and Vista warned me it may not be compatible. But I thought what the heck - if it doesn't work I'll just plug in the old one and uninstall it.
Wrong! Instead, I could not input at all once Windows started to load - no mouse or keyboard. The only fix (Tech support for Dell did not even answer chat, let alone phone) was to reload Vista.
And my programs.
And try to find my data.
Enough moaning. Just a piece of advice re: Vista:
