Make sure you have a spare USB wifi dongle handy as well, it could just be coincidence but a day after installing the update mine died and nothing I could do would bring it back. I'm back to using an old G network adaptor until my replacement arrives.

Well thanks a bunch Microsoft, whatever the hell was in that last update of yours has now managed to kill all of my usb ports. Acording to their help pages there is apparently a way I can fix this in Windows...............or at least there would be IF MY KEYBOARD AND MOUSE DIDN'T NEED A USB CONNECTION!!!  cussing:

It seems every cloud has a silver lining, was picking a friend's brains to see if they could see anything I was missing and they are now sending me their old PC having just upgraded  cloud9:

So what do you need a real keyboard for that you can't do with the touchscreen one I assume you're using now?

I'm using my laptop at the moment, can't use the onscreen one as that needs a mouse to work.

Maybe tell Microsoft about the Computer Misuse Act section 3 (3) http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1990/18/section/3  Recklessly forcing an update on you without checking the loaded USB drivers were compatible

(A threat some of us hinted at against BT when they effed up the YouView boxes over the air, how much that influenced them is unknown but eventually they fixed them)

We new (for me) pooter has arrived and I've been spending the day sorting it out and trying to work out why it's unable to detect my graphics card  Banghead

I've got a nasty feeling that the PCI 16x slot is buggered.  cry:

Graphics card is working again  cloud9:

Forgot I'd had this problem a while back after a windows update and a couple of days later a quietly released hotfix solved the issue it fixed itself.  :thumbsup:

Just got to deal with low res and rough graphics while I wait for the Radeon drivers to download.
