ok.... i had to buy a new pc as my old 1 was very fooked... and being they dont sell new pcs with xp any more i had to have vista! ok i thought ill give it a go.
got the pc home, plugged it in, registerd all the ******** ya need to sat back and thought this vista is quite funky. after spending hours cusomising my new toy putting my tunes on it etc it was time to goto bed.
turned it off and off we went.
come home today and i have no internet. ok... i reset my router (as we all need to do somtimes) still nothing. tuned my lappy on and i have internet. (scratches head)
done all the normal crap to try and ge net back.. nothing. litterlly i was stuck and did not understand why. (i could not even access my router)
so i ring sky ip (my provider) go through all the normal gubbins they do still nothing. i get put through to a "expert" technicion. he said there is a flaw in vista that after a few hours it disables your Nic card. (basicly disables ya network card) he said turn off the pc unplug the power lead an leave it half hour. turn it back on and goto the microsoft site for a patch to fix it!
so i done this.... nothing!! what a load of ********!! im now quite stressed and thinking of takin pc back to shop tomorrow. i use my lappy to download a update put it on my external drive and transfer it to my new pc. this did not work also.
i get another beer and unplug it for about 1 min and turn it back on.. low and behold i have internet. so i race to the microsoft site again and down load a load of updates. im online and hopfully will stay that way!
been lookin on loads of forums regarding this issue. it dumps ya defult gatway.
bill gates.... your a ****in retard!! cheers for telling us that we need to do this to get our pcs running! cock!!
any 1 else had this prob??
edit: i will also add this new pc swallowed up my window tinting funds as the car was booked in this weekend!! gutted now!! lol
