Hi everybody. I have just signed up on this forum, and just wanted to say hello. I'm from Lincolnshire in England, and am an unemployed secretary, who moved to the country for a change of lifestyle.

I've been using computers for years, but am only just learning how to repair them! My SIL builds computers, but as she lives a long way away, I thought it was time to start myself, as I can't afford to get others to do it for me.

I will be asking lots of seemingly stupid questions, so I hope you will all be patient with me.

Thanks, I'll be reading as much as I can over the next few weeks! I bought the Haynes Manual of Build Your Own Computer off Ebay and collected it today, as the seller only lives 9 miles from me. It looks good, and I look forward to learning much more about how these things work.

I'm usually very nervous about taking things apart because I worry about putting them back together wrong, but I have already changed the graphics card over in my main PC, and changed the hard drives in both my main PC, and the mini ATX that I'm using at the moment, so, onward and upward eh???

Will talk again very soon and let you know what I'm up to. Bye for now!!!
