Computer problems
My pc (desktop) still runs on windows XP, and my laptop had vista. I always worked on my pc, as I got so frustrated with vista, I didn't get anything done.
Now, my laptop had windows7 installed, which is great, but I still scrapped on my pc, on the nice big screen. All my LOs are on the pc, the kits.... I have a back-up drive for kits, another for photos, which are both attached to the pc.

Well, the invevitable hads happened, the pc has crashed, and untill my hubbie has installed Windows7, restored the links to the files and external drives, I only have my laptop to work on, which means I can access only part of my kits and pictures, and I miss most of my forum and gallery links....

So if I am not around much, you know why.

Oh Anja that's terrible hun, I am so sorry. Here's hoping hubby gets windows 7 up and running soon so you can get back to it. I know what a pain it can be when you lose a lot of your stuff. Thank heavens you had the external hard drive

Fortunately I haven't lost anything, I just cannot get to it all, right now. There are scattered bits and pieces on various drives and discs I cannot easily access right now...

Well, the computer is still giving me some problems, it does work, but I have both XP and Windows7 installed, and some things only work if I start up in XP, other things just don't, so I have to switch to W7...... and back again if I want to use some of the other applications. There simply are no drivers in W7 for some of my equipment and drives. It is a mess and a nuisance.....

OH no what a frustration that must be Anja, I hope you can still do the things you want to hun. The easter bunny might need to bring you some new drives or something hun

I have a laptop as well as a pc, and the laptop is running on W7. But I prefer my pc for scrapping, I can only use my scanner with the pc running on XP (I still have loads of pictures I need to scan in order to scrap with them), and I have all my emails in outlook, an old version that still runs on XP. I can install a new email program in W7, but that way I can no longer get to any old emails I saved....

AND in W7 I will need to program all my server details again, so I will need to find loads of usernames and passwwords for various servers. I do have them, somewhere, but where????

Sheer frustration........
