Reinstalling is a very poor option mainly because then you never will know 
what caused the problem.  I had a fellow who re-installed five times cause his 
wireless wasn't working.  It wouldn't work the fifth time either so he called 
me.  I went over and turned his wireless switch on and lo and behold it worked 
flawlessly ever since.  He didn't even know he HAD a switch!
