Err.. why did your operating system suddenly decide to reinstall itself?

Anyway. A simple google search would lead you to this microsoft article (the first one from google search I may add) on how to accomplish that with Vista. You never mentioned what operating system you use, so I'll make a guess at that.

Fail, and unless somebody was on your laptop, your screwed it up or you left an installation disk in there and happened to click "Next" about 30 times and type in your address without being aware of it, your laptop wouldn't have reinstalled windows.

    @K3N1, If you have the funds to do so, then go for it I suppose. I'm not the one making the decisions for you.

    Well geesh here I was going to blame you if I bought them and didn't like them

    But honestly AR glasses seem so fragile to spend that much on, no offense, wondering what the lifespan for these

    Wear them for many, many months until one of the temples break off.

    The tech I've used up the most are headphones and wireless earbuds

    $600 is way too much money in my honest opinion, you could get an Oculus for less than that.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Good rule of thumb is to update tech every 5 years

    @ZeroT21, Never used wireless earbuds, never will. Feel unsecure about them.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Just buy cheapo headsets people are dumb for spending $300+ on them

  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    @K3N1 issue is, current tech is intentionally designed to break after a certain amount of use

    I just feel that the sound is going to blare out of my device once they die.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Nah it's not intentional caps just blow up it's part of it

    @ZeroT21, *me looking at my Audio-Technica headphones*

    You buy anything with the risk of knowing it could break

    Yes, the hinge for the left ear broke off after many months of use.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    True

    Look at our homes those are probably more fragile than tech is tbh

    Wondering why everything blows up like my relationships, guess it's karma

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Got mine from Amazon Warehouse, had no problems so far until the hinge became so fragile that it just snapped.

    Wind blows a log over and crashes a window and it's a $300 fix right there

    @ZeroT21, One day you'll find someone who will be interested into you.
