I had to reboot & I had left my HP cd in the drive & it auto came up with the windows installer message.So I believe the auto works now. YEAH!!!
Forgive me short term memory problems since my stroke. I have done so many new things with my computer today -- I think it seemed to just do nothing for a while then flashed finished I think
Thanks again for hanging in there with this,
