I have this computer that i got from my stepson that he was trashing. I do not know much about it other than it was an 80 Gb memory, and 192 Mb of ram. I have had it for about 2 years, and i used it mostly for a trial for an operating system to see the different ones. I installed and uninstalled LinuxMint, PuppyLinux, and some xp operating systems from different downloads, that were created from other individuals. I am not computer eliterate, and that is why i use this computer to try out. I did not want to do all this on my good pc, because, a lot of it i do not know. I would like to be able to just wipe everything off, and start over again, but a lot of the things i hear, do not understand. I cannot make it read a disc, (windows), I do not know which way to go, but would just like to see if it can be done, before i trashed it. I have tried another forum from another program, but i got nowhere. If you think you could help me, i will try what i can do. Just let me know.
a lot i do not understand, nor how to do, and last effert i did somewhere else, i was sometimes told, that i did not know what i was doing. I told this group this, and i already know of my lack of knowledge, but i do try. I do not need to be told this. I do not know all about this SATA, HDD, LED, etc. Some of the pages i have looked at, would make me feel like somekind of electrical engeneer, to understand it. I just want a good start, and i do not expect to make this a top notch pc. I would just like to see if it can happen.
