Hi, just a quick introduction. I'm a medium to low-level computer guy, probably will frustrate some of the guys here with my lack of knowledge, but glad to be here.

I have a small service-oriented business, and I'm really my only employee--I have two laptops in my "business," and one desktop. I'm a 51-year old Alabama resident, to give you a little background. In addition, I have five children, three of whom have laptops, and issues with those laptops from time to time. They look to me as the computer "guru," which is embarrassing--for them. Actually my 19-year old son is better than I am, and has handled his own issues, but his twin sister, and older sister (age 22) look to me for help.

I will be introducing two separate issues--I may have an old laptop dying, and my daughter's one-year old laptop is having issues as well. Won't discuss them here, but just to let ya know what's coming.

Thanks in advance, really appreciate this site being here.

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
