Ugh seriously ... if 1 more piece of pc equipment goes... I might choke myself lol


Thanks
It could be video drivers that aren't compatible with 7. I'm thinking you ought to shut that thing down until you start your install before you fry something. I believe the first part of the tutorial will guide you through the Windows 7 compatibility checker. Then you will be sure to have all the right drivers.

When I did my installation, I ended up having to set the installer for my Lexmark printer to Vista SP2 compatibility mode before running the installation. The tutorial will hold your hand all the way through for things like that. And what ever gaps are in it, that's what these forums are for.

Learn to install, then learn to do backups and you will be on your way to knowing how to maintain a slick dependable computer. And you will never ever want anyone else to touch your machine.

Ok, ... I'm just dropping this at my pc guy tmr. I did want to attempt it, but I don't have the time this weekend to mess around with this and it doesn't sound like I can wait long to get this done according to what Rusty said.

I have a question about Outlook. Where would I put the archive file that I want to save once I get the program back on? That archive saves my calendar too? I've already printed it out, but it would be nice if I could drop this file back somewhere and my calendar would be intact.

I'm going to print these out. I'm not trying it this time, but I will the next time I need to re-install.

Thanks
