Hello everyone, pretty excited to be here.
Got referred to here for tech support and seems like a really neat place.

First off, I'm wondering how one becomes an IT being able to solve/fix any of the problems that come up
I'm not terrible with computers, (I built my own PC) but when it comes to actual software and internal problems, I have no clue.

Any books or a list of posts/threads I should read that explains what I can do with registries, bios, and other configurations?

Second, someone please help me with my laptop problem :thumbsup:
(Posted in the Hijackthis logs/viruses/trojans subforum, but no replies)
My PC that I sent home is much worse and I'm looking to get help on both of them.

I think it fair to say that most knowledgeable Members will generally advise staying away from registry changes, since even a simple mistake can make your operating system inoperable. Bios changes are seldom necessary; but always look for expert help before you make changes even they are needed.
You may want to become familiar with some of the Tutorials (tabbed above), and take a quick look at the Startup List so you know the kinds of information to be found in it.
Welcome to BC!

Wow that tutorial looks way awesome. Looks like a must read

Yeah, I've been told that before :D

I just want to familiarize myself with them.
Aside from looking for "expert help" how do people that are experts get to where they are in the first place is my biggest question o.O
