Don't throw your dreams to the unexplained ...

I'm mildly irritated right now. I managed to do a system restore on my computer but now I'm having all sorts of problems with my wireless connection. If I remember correctly, this is the problem I had when I first installed the thing but I can't for the life of me remember what I did to get it running properly again. So, I'm stuck using my mom's computer. Blech! Anyway. The system restore worked although it set me back to default factory settings so I'm deleting a bunch of stuff that I just don't need. I'll also need to re-download several of my oft used programs because those didn't make it over. I'm without my iTunes and a bunch of other things but I do have my computer so I can't complain too much.

I think I've said enough.

that sucks.

i'm thinking about getting an imac

Okay, what computer manufacturer is this?
Because that sounds like the computer manufacturer's idea of a system restore ... which starts you over from scratch. I was rather hoping you would find XP's system restore and just go back a few days.

If it IS XP's system restore that did this, there is a way to undo it. Just go back in and choose to undo your last restoration.
But the way you're describing it, I don't think the XP system restore was used. Sounds like the OEM system restore.
If this is like a Compaq/HP restore, then it won't go back to the way it was. I hate their restores.

Anyways, if you can find an install CD for the wireless card. You can install that and see if it gets your connection back up.

It's an HP.
I've reinstalled the wireless software. I had a similar problem when I originally installed it and there's a fairly easy fix, I just can't remember what it is. I guess I'll have to do some homework.

Thanks for your help, btw.
