So apparently one of my younger siblings set the System Start up to Diagnostic Mode. I switched it back to Normal and everything is still screwed up. Wireless does not work and things like the appearance settings are missing things here and there. Any solutions?

Let me guess, your internet is broken too? :D

As for the wireless, go in and make sure the wifi is turned on. Also, if you have a laptop, make sure you push the wireless button

Dang I wish I could help, but I don't know anything about Diagnostic Mode. But trying doing a google search, it always helps me.

Using Windows? Try a System Restore to a date 4 or 5 days ago.
Why did it get put into Diag mode?

Yeah, I'm on my laptop. They screwed up the family computer. I've tried looking for the wireless files and programs, but can't find 'em. It's like they aren't there. From what I've read about the Diagnostic Mode I believe it shouldn't have touched them.

Yep windows xp. Already tried system restore. Apparently diagnostic mode deletes system restore. I haven't the slightest idea. My sister thinks she really knows computers when she actually doesn't.

If you don't mind losing all your programs, you can do a complete system restore. It basicly makes your computer the same way it was when you bought it.

Or you could back up all your files then format it

Nuke and pave, and see about getting your younger sibling grounded from the computer for a month.

I'm with WardenWolf. Back up whatever you can (music, photos, reports, etc.) Then clear the drive and start from scratch. And depending on this sibling age, a whipping may be in order. If they're too old for that, a beating will do nicely.

That's what I was afraid of. So thinking just put Vista on it. That'll do the job, right? Yeah, don't think they will have computer privileges for awhile. Luckily no super important info is on that computer though.

I kinda liked XP Pro a little more. Vista seems way to complex and fragile to me. If the battery on my lap dies I have to run a System Recover. It's a hassle.
