    Evening peeps.

    Any tech wizards out there?

    I've had a nightmare day! Around 12pm I was using my lappy as usual when the cursor just vanished, tried a reboot, different browsers but nothing, not even the touchpad works!!

    I've tried all that I know like updating drivers, running tests, malware tests, just about anything I can read on the internet.

    Oddly though, everything is fine when I'm in safe mode, as I am now, except I have no sound, but I do in normal mode!!

    It's driving me mad.

    Anyone out there with any suggestions?

    Two young businessmen in Florida were sitting down for a break in their
    soon-to-be new store in the shopping mall. As yet, the store wasn't ready,
    with only a few shelves and display racks set up.

    One said to the other, "I'll bet that any minute now some senior is going
    to walk by, put his face to the window, and ask what we're selling."

    Sure enough, just a moment later, a curious senior gentleman walked up to
    the window, looked around intensely and rapped on the glass, then in a
    loud voice asked, "What are you selling here?"

    One of the men replied sarcastically, "We're selling !!!-holes."

    Without skipping a beat, the old timer said, "You must be doing well. Only
    two left."

    Seniors -- don't mess with them, They didn't get old by being stupid!

    ive been trying to keep up to date but sometimes its impossible...hows mum? has she managed a few steps yet? often when problems like hers happen the 'patient' gets frightened of walking in case they fall, but often they wont admit it, it can take a while for her to build up trust with her carer to then have the confidence to try

    The GP scales probably see a lot more traffic and i'm going to hazard a guess that they are not going to be calibrated very often (if at all )

    I'm at the age now where i'm going to start refusing, last time the GP asked me my weight so I told her, she didn't believe me and asked me to step on the bloody scales. So from now on they can either believe me or lump it

    Edit - It has, I just searched for it. But all looks ok. It has to ask my permission to switch.

    All the system restores have gone also apart from windows update at 2am this morning. When I tried to restore to that point it said it couldn't due to antivirus. Could that be it?

    But then, I was up until 5am chatting to a mate on skype and then used it again at 10am with no problem.

    I was in the middle of writing an email when it dissapeared!

    Easier just to stick to one set of scales and not to muddy the waters.

    I was at the hospital back in Jan, and now I don'teven trust them to stick to the tape measure on the wall correctly to measure height! She read out the number and I'm like no way have I lost an inch and half, she says oh don'tworry we only worry when you've lost 3! Needless to say I went home and measured myself accurately and I was the height I said I was. She didn't seem to care that it screwed up their calculations.

    System Restore does not always show all the possible resets at once, there is tickbox that says show more restore points. Worryingly though I only seem to have two there now

    It's weird how it just went, really don't know what to suggest!

    Shame, my last one was a Sony Vaio and I really liked it. Yours must be at least 4 years old, not doing too bad for it's age. It could be that you turn it off today, turn it back on tomorrow and it is simply back.

    Yes, I ticked the box but there was nothing there. Years ago you could go back months to a restore!

    Yes it is old but I've never had a problem when I bought it secondhand just over 2 years ago.

    Perhaps I'll have to dig out the old lappy that someone on here gave me a few years ago..

    I like Windows 10 but it seems to be designed to let MS do whatever they want with it, you can't easily block updates now and the lack of restore points is ridiculous.

    Hopefully it will be alright after it has had a good sulk. Other than that, perhaps worth posting on the techie board?
