Driver management software such as SlimWare can often cause problems. Your problem is most likely due to Slimware failing during installation of a new driver, which caused the hardware to malfunction. Do you know which driver it was updating when it failed and you restarted?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
