Hardware Issues
About being your own tekkie!

SMASHING your PC will make you feel better -- but doesn't often fix it!  Instead, grab a beer and call a favorite computer nerd to fix for you!


Microsoft Windows
The Windows operating system is the main software running your PC or laptop.   It has great features and great problems too.  Think of Windows as the user friendly layer between you and all the computer code inside!   Makes your computer fast or slow, manages your memory and lets you do things mostly with mouse clicks rather than writing nerdy computer code.  Click here for links to everything about your Operating System.

PC 101 Troubleshooting:
Software, problem solving, and more

Crashed PC? 
Download this PC Emergency Recovery link to another PC or paste and EMAIL it to your PC to show you or a friend how and where to go.

Computer Software
Internet Browsers, Office software, graphics and music programs  and "Must Have" Utilities (some are free!)

Download Warning:When downloading any software, always look closely at the supplier's URL address at the top of your browser.  ! Even if they show a manufacturer's logo, ONLY download from the original manufacturer's URL -- not outfits in the 'download' business. There's no money for them to offer you free stuff -- they get paid by piggybacking malware to your PC you didn't ask for.

During the download process, beware and UNCHECK boxes asking you to download other crap at the same time! If you don't, you may contract a computer STD that's hard to get rid of!
