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.

LL Skypes with her sister in NZ every couple of weeks... just clicks on Skype in the start menu on her laptop and away she goes...

This morning when she clicks on it Skype has no idea who she is, nope never seen you before, never heard of you...  Banghead

FFS, how do they manage to fuck up simple stuff like this? I'm looking at you Micro$oft!  evil:

I've got to sort it all out now... ::)
