Portie Sound Problem Fixed

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

Regarding the sound problem from this post . . . I think it’s fixed, and I hope it stays fixed! Long story short, this is what happened in the past couple of weeks.

  1. Thought the sound problem started with the WiBro software, so I uninstalled the software. The problem still persisted, so I reinstalled the software back on Portie.
  2. It hit me today that I could do a system restore from a day in January and then reinstall the WiBro software. So I did that, and the sound worked and the WiBro worked!
  3. But another problem came alive . . . let’s just say I forgot I had updated my anti-virus software a week or so ago, and the system restore was from January . . . yeah, I ran into some weird problems.
  4. Luckily, Cat suggested something, and while I don’t think I did it correctly, it solved the problem nonetheless.

Now. The sound works, the WiBro works, and my anti-virus programme works. Dearest Portie . . . PLEASE STAY WORKING.

Anyway, aside from my adventure of computer problems (I’ve been having some issues with my desktop, too. WTF? Is this a month where technology just hates me), I’ve been writing, writing, and writing. It’s funny. When I write other stuff, I don’t feel like blogging as much. Then again, I’ve been writing over 70k of fanfiction and role-play in the last two months . . . so yeah, I think I have a good excuse as to why I haven’t been actively blogging and reading blogs.

Such is life.


  1. Let’s just say that we’re all on olympic hiatus. Haha, that’s basically what I’ve spending all of my free time on.

  2. I’m glad that you seem to have gotten everything figured out again! :D

  3. I understand about what you mean when it comes to not wanting to blog when you’re writing. The problem has been pretty persistent to me too. I need to get back into blogging myself.

    I’m glad that Portie is working again! Yay!

  4. At least you were able to sort out the problem somehow :) I hate having techie problems but it always feels good to be able to solve it on your own! Hehe. I haven’t been blogging much lately as well. I’ve just been tweeting and Facebooking and that’s pretty much it. Such is a boring life for me. Argh. But i’m back to blogging now and hopefully more often as I used to!

    I kind of feel like blogging is a big time commitment in some aspects. Its my hobby, but its a big hobby. And since I only have so much free time, when another hobby comes along, one wins out over the other. So… I’ve been doing other things lately :/ As long as you’re enjoying what you’re doing, who cares how often you update?!
