I discovered the last one since the second week of owning the laptop....or actually the second Wed I took it to mom's church for midweek and it detected a weak wifi connection and automatically connected. I played TSO while eating supper there and then when I got into class all I did was say hi to a friend when class was starting and then e-Sword froze...it kept freezing when I kept trying to bring it up. That Friday I tried to pull it up to do some devotional reading at the game shop, and mom and I thought it was because maybe I needed to have the laptop plugged in...and so even with it plugged in at the shop, I had problems again. I took it to my church on Sunday, it worked great and so I thought the problem was over.
Then last Wed (after a break because we thought that midweek dinner would just be pizza because of Fall Festival and no class anyway) I took the laptop to mom's church again and right when I set it down and turned it on I tried bringing up e-Sword again and for some reason it only would come up normally on the Guest account. Then later on after class and mom and I were at Walmart I started to think... "First week, no wifi internet at mom's church...it worked fine....then next week onward, there was a weak wifi...and that's when the problems started..."
So I went to see how I can bypass all of that and reminded myself that I can pull up the window of the list of all the wifi connections by clicking the system tray icon, and I went further than that by looking at the advanced settings and found that I can set the settings to every wifi connection that my laptop has ever found to either automatic or on demand/manual connection so I set everything other than work, home and school to "on demand" and then I took it to the game shop last night and was able to pull up e-Sword!!
btw I discvored this....
