Re: Wipe Old Computer

Wipe Old Computer

My desktop is back up and running thanks to help from this board, and the new laptop is also up and running. That means I need to get rid of the old laptop, so I want to wipe the data off the hard drive. Can you point me to how to do that with Vista? [more]

Re: LBYM Telecom

I've transitioned to using my cell phone more than my land line since it works better with my hearing aides and has free local and long distance. I also don't make many local calls, so have my land line on a metered service plan- I pay for [more]

Re: Can't Get Online

Hove you removed and then re-installed the internet driver for your network card?

I haven't and I don't know how to do that.

Re: Can't Get Online

It might not be the best way to handle the problem, but I was getting frustrated with the slow laptop and just went out an bought a new one. I'd been thinking about it for awhile and prices were right with back to school specials this weekend.
