Windows 7: Wont start due to setup failure

18 Apr 2012   #21


I've done everything instructed and so far nada! Thats it i'm reporting you guys to our Supreme Leader Leo Laporte
I don't think even the Photoshop Virtual surfer guy would be able to figure this out. So i will take $75.00 to the neighborhood "Computer Expert" and let him use his expertise:-/ I think I'll go up to my attic and get my old Commodore 64 out and play pong. Hopefully I won't mess that up. Bye all. And thanks for the advice.

Absent the insults and had you shown any sign of following the troubleshooting steps I took the trouble to type out, I would have continued helping you.

The US has been utterly ruined by talk radio which took over and wrecked us beyond repair. Don't bring that trash talk here.

It looks like you get the last laugh. First of all the Photoshop guy whatever thing was just a gag. No offense meant. I just wanted to keep my sense of humor up dealing with this POS computer. I do appologize if you were insulted. That wasn't the intent. Now for your retribution I spent $75.00 for a "master tech" to tell me that Win 7 could not be installed on my PC. He said something about "planned obselesense" Apparently the ASUS A8R32 motherboard and accompaning BIOS are incompatable with anything over XP:-( Happy Surfing..........
