    believe it or not, this is the very forum i have ever used. i have been playing with pc's since 1994, and never once really thought about getting into a forum. i have been chat rooms, but most of the time, one is being twisted like they are in a tornando
    so tell me, i am in a good place?
    please call me scott
    thanks
    wish they had spell check:)

    Hi Scottshad

    Welcome to the forum, your in a very bad bad place, everyone here is nasty and evil.........run away now while you have some sanity left ;)

    Nah.. its a great place to be, we try our best to aim the replies to questions at the level of the user no matter what level they are novice to geek ( age means nothing as experience is what counts )... so jump right in ask any questions in the the forum section that most fits the topic and answer any you feel comfortable in replying too.

    Spellchicken is for wusses :D

    thank you for answering my thread, i just the noose wasn't to tight!
    maybe you can help with something , mr halo!

    thanks:confused:

    Hi pop a post in the software forum http://forums.majorgeeks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=21 with as much info as possible on what happens if you get any error messages what are they.

    What your Windows version is.

    Did you install anything new before this happened etc etc....

    But pop it into the software forum I linked to above as many more will see it, the Welcome Center is not viewed by many of the talented people who could help you out.

    :)

    Hi Scott, and welcome to Majorgeeks.com!

    Hope you enjoy the forums as MOST are very friendly and helpful here.

    Halo really is OK....sometimes he spends to much time in the wine cellar though!

    Pssssssst don’t tell anyone scottshad, but me , Mankind, Darlene, & TimW, have just made a break-out from the Loonie bin called Major Geeks that we’ve been locked up in by the “Evil” Mr. Halo…………..Run Boy, Run for your life before he converts you to into a “Tron” figure, and has his “Evil” ways with your PC, like he has with the rest of us poor Geeks. The things he does to your PC are just tooooooooo Horrible to speak about RUN, RUN for your life before he calls out Major Attitude hisself (shudder)

    Hey Scott...seeing your message was a comfort because I am "currently" the newbie lol I decided as of yesterday to start taking apart computers and trying to fix the ones at my house...not understanding what I really got myself into!

    I found this site and it's already helped me a lot and the people here are very knowledgeable for computer dumbasses like myself :p

    Anyways I better get back to business Ciao

    scottshad Private First Class

    well, nothing wrong in being a newbie. i admire the fact you want to take computers apart and make them work. man, i have hard enough time just making a brand new to work right lol.
    i collect guns, i can take any gun apart, fix, or find the reason for it not working, i can either locate a new part or get one made.
    guns i know, computers, well, i am learning(8 years now)...GOOD LUCK with your new business.
    scott
    HAPPY HOLIDAY
