Hi Cyndi!

You can have Vista uninstalled and XP reinstalled on your new laptop. My hubby had his IT people at work do it for his and his brother's new laptops.

You might be able to contact Best Buy or something like GeekSquad to do this.

Good luck. I too have to put the laptop up high at times. Toddlers are very in-the-moment, eh?

That is what I intend to do: keep using XP. Everything I have works with it, and if I get Vista then I would have to get newer versions of some other programs. There are a few favorites that I expect not to work with Vista, so I don't plan to get it.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. When I was in Seminary they had a favorite line. Whenever we had difficulty with anyone or anything they would say it was a "learning experience." That was supposed to make us look at it positively. LOL.

Too bad it had to happen at a busy time. Oh yeah, that's right, every time is a busy time when you have little ones. I know you will come out OK.
Take care,

I'm so sorry to hear about your laptop. The other folks are right, you can get XP installed if you're not ready to move to Vista right. Hopefully things will work out sooner rather than later. Saying a few prayers for you that things get better quickly. Hugs, Lainey

You may miss this but I felt that I had to respond. First, total sympathy! But, if you count your blessings, You have a NEW laptop; You did not lose your data; You have wonderful healthy children! Vista takes getting used to but it really isn't that different once you get everything set back up. Good luck with this. Your work is getting better all of the time so concentrate on that and rejoice!

WOW, I would have freaked out too if one of my sons had done that, I won't let anyone touch my new laptop, not even my hubby, lol.

I specifically ordered mine from Dell once they gave the option of getting XP instead Vista because I was so scared of Vista.

Hope you get things all set up and back to normal soon, for your sanity!

So sorry to hear about the laptop. He really did a number on it, didn't he? Oh well, it may not have lasted another year, and you would have had to swith to Vista anyway. Great shots of the flowers! Best wishes.

My son did exactley the same to my laptop, and i searched the nternet for a new keyboard,would be around £70.00. but I found someone on ebay selling the keys and the hinges, I bought a couple of keys and told the seller the problem he sent me 6 hinges and i fixed the keys, cost me £6.00 with postage. Just an idea for you to try
