    You know for the info of others her you might want to try to use a clear sealant....just to see what happens....here is your chance to play around

    Either way let us know how it looks when done.

    Good luck to you.

    I sincerely don't mean to laugh at your misfortune dawson, but I can just picture it all going wrong and it getting worse and worse as you try to fix it, ending up in you sitting in a pile of rubble which was your house or something :D

    Bad luck dude, this should certainly go in the Disaster forum!! :)

    KNA, thats cruel, but true.... I have to agree, I've had some disasters in the last few days, with the main rig just seeming to screw up, and windows crashing good and proppa... and they say windows XP is the most stable OS from microsoft yet..... :confused: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    In this day in age, you have to be cruel to be kind, yes when windows crashed and I lost all of my coursework from the previous few nights it was annoying, but then you look at it from a light hearted point of view and it was kinda funny... :D

    If you havent wreked the whole thing you could always cut the window down and use it again in another case!

    I wont hassel you over how you managed to get the window black ... but i guess that you have tried white spirits, brasso and every other chemical that has some form of restoration properties

    I think you shouldnt of used a scowering pad,

    Maybe a bit of mr sheen and a lot of elbow grease might have done the trick,

    Nice reply from Kna tho:rofl:

    Why not try taking a dremel with a wire brush attachment on it to the window? You could turn it into a frosted window no probs :D Actaully had a good window recycling idea earlier but we might actually get 'round to doing it so if I told you now I'd have to kill you... sorry :)

    Cheers,

    I use Motherboard Monitor with Windows XP and haven't had any issues. My LCD works perfectly running LCDriver, LCDCenter and MBM under XP. As Rich pointed out this new O/S is very stable once configured right.
