Bought a Sylvania netbook at CVS pharmacy for $99 plus tax. It wouldn't even boot; hung there saying "Loading OS Image...". Went to DigitalGadgets website, and on the Downloads tab got the software update. Unzipped it onto the root of an SD card, inserted it the right way into the slot, power-cycled, nothing happened. Tried putting the SD card in upside down (gold tabs up) on a whim. It worked! The software installed. Now to see if I can actually get online with the goddamned piece of shit.
