    Yep I see the BSOD on Windows all too often in the course of my work.

    That's why I don't use Windows at home. In fact, I bet I'm the only person on Wiichat who uses the OS I use. ;)

    I've never gotten the BSOD, but I have gotten pretty messed up screens. I've gotten ones where everything is blown waaay up, one where the resolution is super low, one were my monitor says it cannot interpret/handle the computers signal, one where the screen is all colorful and stuff.

    I have really bad luck with computers...

    You either have some type of linux, or an OS that is outdated.

    I get about every other time I turn on my laptop. Which is why I stopped shutting it down and just close the screen instead. Vista is a piece of crap.

    Mmmm... BSOD....
    I can feel your pain, Windows is in need of help.
    I hate auto update too, had to reinstall Windows after the "update" killed my registry....:mad5:

    Hehe, good to see people know what we are talking about. Stupid computer-illiterates... But they are how Dell call centres make money I spose. Dell sucks too...
    In fact, most of them suck. Make your own computer, it is cheaper.

    No offense, and I'm sure there are exceptions (and from what I see on Wiichat, you're probably one of them), but Geek Squad certainly doesn't have a very good reputation.

    http://consumerist.com/tag/geek-squad/

    Certainly Dell has issues too... with their consumer line at least (Dimension & Inspiron). Tech support for those will be a nightmare. That's why I never refer people to those lines, and tell everyone to buy the "business" lines (Optiplex and Latitude). Not only are the computers built better out of better parts, but you get an entirely different level of tech support. And it's good. Worth the little extra up-front. First time you ever need tech support, you'll be glad you paid more for an Optiplex/Latitude.

    I haven't seen a BSOD in *ages*. The machines around here get a pretty stout workout too - my main dev machine has been up for like 3 weeks, the notebook downstairs for 2, and a couple of servers since mid-Feb, no reboot, no issues, no crashes, etc. We're on a mix of XP Pro and Server 2K3.

    I agree on the Dell business/enterprise class machines - we're had/have dozens of servers, mainly from the PowerEdge line, and little to no problems and outstanding customer support (the more you pay, the better it is, but the entry level support is still good).

    BSOD, haven't seen it since the old 98 days and a few times in Win2000, since I moved to XP Pro and Server2003 along with Vista business edition it just doesn't happen anymore. I run server2003 at home along with a couple XP machines and a couple Vista machines, just because my job requires it, my fav at the moment is Ubuntu though, it just rocks ya know.....
