    Congrats :P Sometime I wish I had a lappy instead of sitting at my desk all day

    is the printer wirless enabled ? For my lexmark i had to plug the printer to the laptop first, then set up the wireless (using my wireless router) then it worked after that

    Much more comfy on the sofa isn't it

    yes it's wirless enabled and i have it set up as a shared printer on my network connection but haven't a clue why i can't print from it :?
    with my other pc i had to load a cd on but i thought as it's wireless & i have it set to share it would print

    you need to tell the pc to send it via wireless, load the cd and should be an option when setting it, to print wirelessly

    i rang up my local branch yesterday afternoon & they said they had 2 but they were 146.97!! i asked her to scan one and she said oh you're right they are 22.78 i asked her if i could reserve both as i wanted to get one for my mum's birthday but she said they're not allowed to reserve & i thought oh well if they have them priced up at 147 pounds they will still both be there 10 mins later but one had supposedly just been sold when i got there!! last time i tip off tesco staff :lol:

    don't know what's going on with this netbook now as i can't do the pound symbol & i have to use " to get @ :?

    your keyboard is set to american by default-change it to uk english to get the symbols correctly.

    its in keyboard layout settings.-if your netbook is running linux the icon is in the bottom right of the screen-in windows will be in control panel under devices.
