a few days ago a friend of my wifes from work brought his laptop to me to repair. It had win7 on it. when i fired it up i find it was a pirated version that the last person that "fixed it" installed. Its having all kind of software issues etc.
I suggest shrinking the partition and installing Zorin. I let him sit down at my laptop and look the system over , play with it etc.
So we decide to put zorin on it. he works with my Wife so i let him use my laptop while i do his.
Welcome to the outer limits.
He no sooner get home than i get a call, i cant get the computer on.
whats it doing? i get a black screen with a white line. ok thats the boot screen you have to wait for the login screen. OH!.
Then zorin goes totally schitzoid for some reason no idea why.
ok bring it back in the morning and ill check it.(its already midnight)
brings it back i have no idea what happened ok just boot into Ultimate. ill have yours ready tonight.
start to shrink the partition and everything tells me the partition is wonky has to be reformatted, windows wont defrag or restore go figure. call him tell him
what need to be done. ok
copy his files off wipe and reformat, install zorin. no worries.
He picks it up and leaves. he calls 10 minutes later, i can get on the internet
i put the password in and it wont authenticate. what password? the one you gave me. that is for the computer not the internet. You need the password from your internet provider. OH
Every night since i have gotten a call , same problem. i cant get on line. what password are you using? The one you gave me. thats for the computer not the internet.
This is most definitely a PICNIC error resulting in a terminal ID10T error.
