    Going to Geek Squad was your first mistake :-P Their "optimization" is a joke.

    What kind of Internet do you have and how do you connect to it (wireless/wired router, etc)?

    Does your laptop have a name, Marry, Joseph, toshiba, IBM ?
    What operating sys (o/s) win_xp, win_me, win_98 ?
    Is the laptop "wireless" ready? Is there a wireless (transmitter) lan, etc for u to receive?

I found the following link to be really helpful in relating to this control panel access issue. I suppose since you said you have a "new computer" that chances are it has Windows Vista on it since almost all new computers are sold with Windows Vista Operating Systems...

GEEK SQUAD


I agree. Never ever ever ever ever take your computer to Geek Squad. I don't know how many times I have to go to people's homes and correct something GS did or they tell me they reformatted their drive, losing all their data without telling them first, for something so simple that could have been fixed inside of 15 minutes. And they charge way above industry standard and most of their techs have had no formal training.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as FixYa. Thank you.

GEEK SQUAD ON MY HOME COMPUTER?


You will need to contact the Geeksquad for this or the place it was set up at (if not Geeksquad). This is Fixya.com, we have nothing to do with the Geeksquad.

Yeah you definitely don't want geek squad. Unfortunately I don't know of anyone immediately in the area. Give me 24 hours and I'll find someone. My email is info@antiochpc.com . Email me and I'll respond there.

Not happy with our new Toshiba


If the Geek Squad came out to transfer your data for you they should guarantee their work. Call them back and have them show you how to access it.
