just override the website's BIOS and enter the binary system code to decompile the kernel firewall.

It won't make any more sense in English; it was typical TV/movie technobabble that sounds cool but means nothing.

Go to HP's support website and download the latest touchpad drivers for your computer. Sometimes with operating system updates from Microsoft, devices with older drivers can malfunction.

I updated the driver from HP's website and it worked, never would of thought updating the driver would correct it, figured the year and a half of jumping back and forth between 2 forums and school work just wore it out. If I was in Cali I'd buy you a beer. Thanks again

Watch jurassic park again. Their computer system is hilarious. It's closer to Tron than real life.

Awesome!

1) Independence Day - Jeff Goldblum's computer screen as he uploads a C++ program to the alien mothership. Jeff: *claps hands* "I'm in!"

2) Swordfish - The best is when Halle Berry delivers the line about needing a multiheaded worm to sniff out latent digital footprints on an encrypted network. That line is so horribly delivered that you can just tell she has no idea what she's talking about.

3) Hollowman w/ Kevin Bacon - The whole movie is chock full of hilarious idiot-proof computer graphics. And the entire storyline revolves around what the scientist refer to as "the protocol serum" which is a totally empty phrase. Many of their discussions are complete gibberish.
