Re: Addt'l misc. drivers load [DOS format] After OS Boots
Andrew...Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! You have SOLVED this problem.
Somewhere in my selects, deselects, et al (I still do not possess the vast
vocabulary of terms needed to exactly explain what it is that I want to say)
I undid the gui or redid it.....whatever! I took your advice, followed your
direction to the tee. Lo and behold after the next reboot my laptop is
working just as it did prior to my "screwing with the startup commands,
scripts, programs, and whatever else you could call them".
I am now One Happy Camper again! Of course this does not mean that I still
have no other issues with things that go "bump" inside this laptop but
somehow just getting back to first base was very refreshing.
Again...mucho appreciado for your input and insights.
