yikes! For nearly a month I have been unable to deal with the frustration that is my computer!! A new Dell laptop – the speaker sound is distorted, the OS crashes and is incompatible with the software…. I am so disappointed with this new computer I can’t even express it! I hate to look at it, much less turn it on and try to use it….
I do not recommend Dell laptops — I had a Gateway previously which I was extremely happy with for 10 years… Damn, I wish I had replaced it with another Gateway instead of this thing… I can’t afford to buy another computer at this time – If I could, this one would be traded in for an apple, I think. I think a big part of my frustration is due to the new Windows OS Vista — I was never crazy about Windows, but this new one is really, really irritating! I can’t run “my” programs, and when I try to run the ones that are “supposed” to be compatible – the system crashes, or functioning is compromised.
As far as Dell is concerned – the software provided with the computer that was supposed to work with Vista doesn’t. So either they didn’t adequately test it, or they lied. Either way, the consumer is frustrated and screwed.
