Hi to all and Thank You for welcoming me to your web site ! Iam a 51 year old married father of two young children . I have a 14 year old girl and a 12 year old boy ! I purchased my first PC in 2000 ! Yes a late comer to PC's ,however ever since I've been a PC nut . My Wife says Iam obsessed , I even tried learning how to program in Visual C++ , found that to be to much reading and very confusing . After messing around checking out all of the programming languages I actually found my real home was working with the harware and I installed just about every piece of hardware in a computer that you can. Either in my own systems or relatives and friends ( graphic cards,sound cards, RAM, hard drives ,power supplies) you get the idea ,all the easy stuff ! When my first PC a Pentium 3 750MHz 256MB SDRAM O/S WindowMe became out dated I purchased a new Dell in 2006 a XPS400 2.8GHz Dual Core O/S WindowsXP Pro SP2 MCE 2005 ,so far its been a excellent work horse, I know alot of people hate Dell however so far my exprience has been a very good one. I've added a few new pieces of hardware however this system came with just about everything I needed. I mostly surf the internet while watching TV in a resizable box on my desktop via my ATI TV Tuner card the ATI TV Wonder Elite PCI ! I would now like to add a additionial 19" LCD display so I can have two monitors on my desktop ,my B-day is in Agust ,keeping fingers crosed ! Well my longwinded rant is over . Nice to meet everyone, and thanks for welcoming me into your community, even though I have other resources for troubleshooting PC problems this site looks like a huge asset when looking for help ! Iam very happy to come here ,I have heard of this site often and finally found it when searching a app listed in MSCONFIG !
Take Care to All, NicR

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
