Vista, ny laptop, and errors galore.

So I got my new laptop, and I wanted MSN installed.

But for some reason, it won't allow me to connect to it because certain DLL files are inaccessible or something, and I have no idea how to fix it.

Problem two. It won't correctly system restore. It resets and all, but then comes back online saying that the restore wasn't completed properly and I should try again.

I gave up after my third try.
Help? Please?

Maybe just restore it to factory settings as it sounds like msn may have screwed something up. I have had some trouble with a clients vista machine and msn, but not on my machine....go figure.

Anyhoo to avoid any future problems with msn just use amsn it is a clone of msn without the bugs. Also it works with your existing msn username and password.

Hmm... sounds like a noobish question, but how does one restore it to factory settings?

Also, will I lose my MS Office trial?

Most laptops have either restore disks or a small partition on the hard drive that you can restore from to bring it back to how it was when you first turned it on. Read the instructions that came with your lappy.

I take it that this is a very new laptop so you should not have much to lose, BUT if there is anything you want to save back it up to a usb drive first.

As for your office trial you should not lose it but the trial should pick up from the date you are up to now.

Alright, sounds good. I shall do that.

I only got it today, no important files on it just yet. I will do that as soon as possible.

Ah, the Atomican people. Is there nothing they can't do?

(Meaning- thanks guys!)

And yeah, Middy, I did try aMSN. Trippy as.

UPDATE - Thanks bowiee, it did wonders. I have MSN again!

I tried aMSN but it was really confusing, even if it is supposed to be similar.

That's great ! Msn is good when it's working right, but sometimes when being setup it seems to have a heart attack and screw up everything. Glad it all worked out for you mate :)
