Well after numerous dreaded blue screen of deaths I decided that I would rebuild my laptop instead of my original impulse to rsuh out and by a new one. So I gathered all my disks together read the instructions then crossed my fingers and went for it.

I thought easy I have done this before so will be simple, well let me tell you it was anything but and had to eventually admit defeat and ring the nice men at DELL to get there help - but my bad luck was to last a little longer my extended warrenty had run out 2 months ago so with fingers crossed I enquired how much to get it going and they said a max of £60.00 as this was cheaper than a new machine i said OK

So after they talked me through some of the reinstall they took over my laptop remotely for 2 hours and hey presto a new fast and improved machine for the bargain price of 60.00.

I have now finished installing my software and was quite selective on what I put back on to try and keep it working faster.

My cutter files work on many machines. Such as the: Craft Robo, Klik-n-kut, Pazzle, Wishblade, Silhouette, Cricut. Common software used with these machines are: Funtime Scrapbooking, Pazzles, WinPC/Signlab, Inkscape, Illustrator, KNK Studio, Sure-Cuts-a-Lot, and Robomaster.
