Hi everybody at BleepingComputer.com,

I am a know-nothing computer geek wannabe! :thumbsup:
I hope I can somehow contribute to the forum. I also feel enthused that I have some place to come with my computer issues. I, now, have a Dell Inspirion Vista Desktop p.c., after the last three (3) Dell Dimensions, Windows XP. I was just sent this "new" computer about six (6) days ago, on the 1st of December, approximately. It is already giving me problems! I keep getting a black screen, which reads, "Please Insert Correct Disk, then push any key to continue." This happens whenever I have to restart my computer. Then, I have to disconnect my external drives, one a flash drive, and manually restart my comp., while simultaneously hitting F8 repeatedly. That Safe Mode screen lets me choose to "Start Windows Normally,"...lol!" Whatever! I'm just hoping this thing lets me finish the last days of the fall semester, ya' know? Sorry for going on so much about my troubling computer!
I am a student at a local college, studying for my paralegal certificate; and won't be graduating until after the Spring '09 semester. I'll see if I can pull up a picture of myself. Well, that didn't work! :flowers: There! That should do for now!
Happy, and safe, holidays to all my new friends out here on BleepingComputer.com!
