This may only apply to ADVENT users but take note:

Due to an 'unfortunate accident' I found myself needing to do a full OS restore from the recovery disks supplied with my machine.

All went fine until re-booting the machine I was told that I had to replace all the original hardware that had been in my machine :eek:

Fortunately I had not yet given away my old graphics card (sorry ZAnwar!!) or chucked out the dial-up-modem card and I was able to do this. Had I been more efficient said graphics card would have been somewhere else and I'd have been knackered.

Other thing was that the non-destructive re-installation wouldn't work (ADSL could not be recognised...) so I needed to do a full overwrite.

BAH HUMBUG

In the end to celebrate an extra 1/2 Gb of RAM I got the full XPP, so stuff you ADVENT :mad:

It's probably the make ADVENT, I had a Advent laptop and it gave me nothing but problems (restarting when on internet) after months and months of putting up with it I had to have mylaptop replaced by a different model and manufacturer.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
