Well I just downloaded and ran the ZA update and got a bit of a shock.
When I rebooted after the install there was a lot of disk thrashing as I expeced
after the install but the screen remained blank.
After the thrashing had finished it was still blank and I was worried, so I left it ten
minutes, still blank .
I tried rebooting into recovery but that didn't seem to work, it said it could not recover
and that I needed to reboot into recovery mode or something. (which I had just done) so I just exited,
maybe it had recovered already I don't know.
Anyway I took a chance and rebooted normally and it seemed to work, screen working and desktop appeared
The ZA set-up thing (set-up) came one and I went through it but I quit it when it asked to automatically configure my firewall (I didn't thrust it anymore )
So it is all fine now apart from the auto-config, but it seems 'configured' anyway, it
has the list of programs and firewall options for them.
I am not sure what happened but it seemed like it had used my old graphics card
drivers (I got a new card a week ago), when I installed that I got the same
blank screen, however now I remember, I sorted that by checking cables and
that the memory was seated properly (and cleaned the motherboard a bit).
So the graphic card drivers 'thing' might be a red herring.
I rebooted agian and had the exact same problem, blannk screen etc...
Again I rebooted into recovery mode, but I just did what I did before, exited as soon as
I got the 'Windows c:>' prompt.
I again rebooted normally and it was fine again?
What should I do? Am I right about it using old drivers and is recovery, although I did not
actually do anything in recovery mode, fixing it?
