I had a systems update and it turned the blasted laptop doolally, even allowing for operator stupidity.
I am slowly restoring as much as possible, thank goodness for you tube on the telly.
It took me almost 30 minutes to persuade the printer that it was installed and to tell the laptop that I did want to use the printer installed and not some strange named creature from another dimension.
For a while I was thinking that if I lobbed it across the room and let Herbie have a game it might teach it to behave.
I managed to conjure up some common (HUH very rare) sense and just watch a couple of how to videos and follow along.
Almost like painting by numbers.
I will be back tomorrow once I have cooled down a few hundred degrees and regained some calm.
