Wifi says off, how to turn on.

    Thanks Z, sending this from work, sorted out the desk top as you said, that's great. Still have the sound prob with cd & dvd not opening, as, it seems, are many, many others on this forum. Do you think it would help going to one of those driver download sites for $29.95 per year. I did try DriverUpdate, but they were not helpful, and I did get my money refunded. Advanced Driver updates has very good reviews, what do you think. Bob

    Glad you got your desktop fixed up. I have never used a service of the type you mention. I am skeptical about you getting much for your money. And, I probably would be fearful of using what they suggest in a variety of cases. Do you have info about your video/display card/adapter? Go run > (from desktop or metro) > type "msconfig" > Select "OK" > Tools > System Information > Launch > Components (and open Components) > Display > See what "Name" comes up. You could get the same "Name" using Device Manager and looking at "Display Adapters." Are you having an "uncomfortable" video/display problem?
