    The laptop I mentioned previously arrived on Monday, everything is brilliant except it refuses to make the restore disks, what can be done about this?

    Since it has the windows 7 serial number/product key on a sticker on the bottom would it be possible to just use an ordinary install disk in the event i needed to reinstall windows?

    You'd need an OEM copy of Windows 7 not retail. You should have received a product recovery disc with the computer, what brand of notebook is it?

    If all else fails, create a WIM image or use a program like Acronis to create one and restore that if your install borks.

    No disks with the computer, it had a built in program that launched on first run that was supposed to make the backup disks, however it crashed on the third disk and now it doesn't work

    Laptop is an ASUS

    I went on the Acronis website and it appears to cost nearly £30, seeing as the hard drive on this is a western digital could i use this version of acronis -->http://support.wdc.com/product/downloaddetail.asp?swid=119&wdc_lang=en

    indeed you could XD

    try and order the disks from Asus, it might make it better as you wont have all the bloatware everytime you re-install

    WOAH!

    NdMk2o1o has been banned, does anyone know if this is permanent or just temporary?

    He'll be duly missed.

    :(

    well he did break a few rules in the process. I guess enough times to earn 3 strikes against his name.

    I just hope he comes back.

    I didn't see anything out of line in that thread. Mods must have removed his posts. Hopefully Tatty might be able to see if it's perma.

    they pinned him for name calling/insulting other members. petty stuff really, nothing above the level that you see in kindergarten.

    all he did was call so and so, stupid/dumb and possibly an idiot a few times and that was pretty much it. not what i would call name calling but it still fits in under insulting other members rule. I was there when it all happened.

    He got asked to stop, then was formally warned, then got an infraction, as he already had some stuff outstanding it was added to that, once you get to a certain number it's a ban, in this case it's only for a couple of days I think and then one of his previous expire so he should be back by the end of the weekend latest.

    Thing is these things can start petty, people can be asked nicely to stop, they ignore, they then get "formally" asked to stop, then it just escalates leaving Mods no choice.

    As well as it being the internet, you're still having a conversation (and/or debate) with a living person. Just as people can be utter dicks in real life, the same is applied to online (or on the phone etc).

    Some members & mods can be incredibly arrogant (without expanding on other characteristics) and think everything they say is gospel. That alone is enough to irritate the fuck out of some. Especially if it happens consistently.
