Re: new computer

Ok, "nuff pancakes.

I am sitting here with both my old laptop and new laptop. I am good on the display now, especially with the control++ feature.

Last time I got a new computer CT suggested a flash drive to use to move stuff from the old to the new computer. It worked great. I now took out that flash drive, plugged it into my old laptop, to move a few things. I can't find the drive on the system. My computer is just sitting there like a lump.

Ideas? I'll consider sexy pancake poses for help.

Re: new computer

Click on 'my computer' from the desktop and look for it there.

Can I parlay those pancake poses into crepes?

Re: new computer

if that doesnt work, right click on 'my computer', click on 'manage', then click on 'disk management'. See if you see it there and what state its in. Might have gone bad.

Re: new computer

Is it okay if I continue feeding scrambled eggs to Gabe while I wait?
