I think you are right, it may be the inverter board. Going to see if I can buy a replacement and try and fix it myself. I will let you know what happens (:

“I do not like not having antivirus software on the computer. Do I need to come to the realization that because the computer is older it is going to run slower?”Going on-line without an AV is just asking for trouble. Older computer do not necessarily need to be slow but they may not be able to handle new software very well. Let's run a few more scans to make sure it is clean.

I will post as soon as I get something up and running.You need to get SP3. Malware just loves computer with out-of-date programs.

It seems like I keep hitting brick walls with this laptop. As soon as I get another inverter I will run Dial- A Fix. Thanks for being patient, I know my patience is running out!”There are two main reasons why the updates won't download; one is there is not enough room on your harddrive and two, the malware has messed up the computer.
