Hi Folks !
To introduce myself :-
I've worked as an electronics tech for most of my life but also in computing ,
going back to the days when they were "Main-frames " that filled large air-conditioned rooms .
These days I work as a " One Stop Fix-it Shop" .
"Everything from Laptops to Lawnmowers " , but mostly computer repairs and solar power systems.
I really wish I'd found this forum years ago ; it would have saved me a lot of time !!
The diagnostic tools that BC recommends are excellent and I've downloaded a selection to a
Flash-drive because I'm often working in places where the internet connection is unreliable.
BTW ... I agree with those members who recommend " Speccy" as a first choice of diagnostic.
I think Piriform make superb software tools , ( and also IOBit , who make Advanced System Care
and other products ).
Best wishes to all forum members !
