    Hi there, well it appears that I have two accounts here on this great forum called Techguy.

    Kbaasit
    Nutech12

    I believe the 1st acct is the oldest account, the one I would like to keep.

    A 2nd account happened may have happened as I couldn't get access to my original account. If the 2nd acct is deleted would that also take a long with any posts that I may have made?

    My apologies for the confusion. I'm able to logon on to one acct easily on my PC the other on my cell phone!

    Pls advise as to what I should do

    Thank you.

    First and foremost we have to verify that you own the other account and I've already been able to do that because I can see that both accounts share IP addresses.

    I can merge the new account (Nutech12) into the old one (kbaasit) and that will retain all of the profile data from the kbaasit account and all posts made by the Nutech12 account will now show as having been made by kbaasit (they will not be deleted). Subsequently, the Nutech12 account will be deleted.

    Before I do the merge, I'd like to know a couple of things:

    1) The username as it exists doesn't have a capital "K" at the beginning. Would you prefer that it have the capital "K"? Usernames are not case sensitive when entering them so it's just for appearance preference.

    2) The signature of the newer account shows your computer specs at being Windows 10 whereas the old account shows a version of Windows 7 that we don't support so I'm going to erase it. Would you like me to copy the below computer specs to the old account so you don't have to type it all over again?

    "OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 7750 Dual-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 2 Stepping 3
    Processor Count: 2 / RAM: 7935 Mb / Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8200, 256 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: 930 GB (529 GB Free); F: 0 GB (0 GB Free);
    Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC., M3N78-VM / Antivirus: Windows Defender, Enabled and Updated"

    Thanks for your prompt reply, merging would be great thank you. Can you can revise the older Kbaasit account to the older name Nutech12?

    As far as the Signature is concerned I bought some new used components last nite, I don't think the guy installed them properly tho!

    My new signature will be something like this:

    Win 10 Pro 64 bit
    i5 6400,
    Asus H110I-G11CD motherboard,
    8gb Samsung Ddr4 Ram,
    Samsung 860 250gb SSD,
    Zotac 1050ti OC.
    1tb SATA HDD

    Thanks for your help!

    So if I understand correctly want to merge the old account into the new one under the name Nutech12? Do you wish to retain the email address used for Nutech12 or the other? Don't post the email address here.

    Close. :)

    If the old one is kbaasit I'd like to keep this, but rename it to Nutech12.

    Or am I just confused?!

    I'll merge Nutech12 into kbaassit and then rename it to Nutech12.

    It's done and I copied your computer specs from post no. 3 into your signature as well.
