I am a very happy chappy this morning. I took the battery out of my laptop last night hoping that would clear the usb bus problem and let me use them again which it did so with no warning signs lit up this morning I plugged it the wireless mouse and speakers and all worked fine. Then it was the turn of my external hard drive as it was the only other thing plugged in at the time. I changed the usb lead as the problem was most likely to be there. With crossed fingers I switched the drive on and thankfully all works. So I have a back up machine and I learned a little more about keeping these little machines of wonder running.
Fault c43 is logged in the list I have for fixes I have learned along the way.
A lovely sunny day here so I am off to do my Sunday shop in a little while. A nice stroll over clutching my little camera is on the cards,catch you soon
