New pc woes

After spending 2 weeks of my spare time trying to get my pc working again-new power supply, new mother board and memory, etc, we finally decided to take back all the parts and buy a new HP media pc. The new one has Vista home premium and windows media player on it. It does not see the tuner card, though it is installed in device manager. I think I finally found the solution on HP's website. I should have known it would be challenging when we started it and the pc froze at the registration page. Then every reboot it kept going into safe mode. I finally restored it to the factory shipped settings and was able to get the darn thing working. Is it to much to ask that the pc work out of the box? I don't think that is an unreasonable request...

He was climbing on something Thursday night and fell, hitting the side of his head and splitting it open. Once daddy looked at it and decided it needed stitches or something, I took him to the ER. We were there for almost 5 hours before they were able to examine him and glue it together. During the first 4 hours he was climbing on the chair backs in the waiting room, trying to jump off... Almost 2 and no sense yet. :)
