Hi all. I'm new on this forum before though I do believe I might have stopped by a time or two in the past. It looks awfully familiar here.


Anyways I just thought I'd drop in and say I'm over 60 yrs. old but under 65 yrs. old. I've been "dabbling" in computers since my first one, a Coleco Adam a long, long time ago. I've tried to keep up but my job at the time was demanding so I dropped behind a bit re: Windows 7 and now windows 8 and 8.1 (among a number of other "new" innovative programs since my basic, basica and DOS days).


Hence, I'm here because I have a problem that I think there might be a hardware solution to. But before I go out and buy something else I thought I'd drop in here and discuss it for a bit.


But that's being saved for another thread. I'm just introducing myself here. I'm hoping I can provide some support to folks just as much or more than I need support.


I currently have my "beater" laptop that I'm using right now (yeah, laptop... the wife has the tablet) . It's old, predictable and still very reliable. I also have another "machine". A desktop that was built by "ibuypower". It has it's moments. I'm a novice gamer (BFVN, BFBC2, BF3, BF4, Titanfall, Assassin's Creed Unity, Civilization V, Civilization Beyond Earth, Axis and Allies, AOE, etc.), I write online a lot, I dabble in Social Media (Facebook, Experience Project, Twitter, etc.), I do a lot of digital photography and quite frankly I'm on the computer more than I watch television, listen to the radio or read books.


Obviously I'm looking for some ideas re: a problem but am also going to review some threads to see if I can offer some simple advice as well.
