I am new to BC. I have searched for an answer to this but have come up empty. I am a computer tech that works at a local repair shop and would like to know if I can request help from Bleeping Computer when I run into a problem I cannot solve myself. I guess my question is, Does it break any of BC's rules to ask for help when working on a computer that is not my own while I am being paid to do so. Hope my question is clear. Thank you, you guys are GREAT!!!!!!!!!

For the most part we do not mind, but we just ask that it does not happen too often.

Hey Puterdude -

You might find that the problem you are having has been asked, diagnosed, and answered here already.

"Search" is your friend.

Otherwise, :welcome: and good luck.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
