I know what you mean. It's like me not remembering everything from windows 95 and 98 and alot of people are still using the OS.
I'm not A+ certified but have all the answers on a disk
from a friend.
Well I can tell you it's fine. Of course if someone don't disable the Remote Desktop or remote Assistance found by right clicking My computer and properties and remote tab. Or not updating there security patches and don't have a firewallcan be easy targets for hackers .I dont think i like windows XP its a little too user friendly.
No, I wouldn't say that. I don't know everything and can learn non stop from others, theres always something I might not know.it seems i am almost at the same level as someone who knows very little about computers.
So don't feel bad. I'm learning alot by hanging out here I can tell you that
Give me a moment oki know i have a diamond micronics motherboard. i cant for the life of me in the bios or in the device manager find out what version it is. if you happen to know how i can check what board i have let me know
Yes I remember those days.this computer was great when i built it. its really pissing me off lately. this stuff used to be alot easier to fix
I give you a link to give you an idea, I can built a good system just under 400 to 300 Us dollars.Originally posted by dred:
mother board, CPU whats the best cheapest way out right now. I cant afford my beer habit right now let alone computer stuff. but i cant deal anymore. I got the pentium 3 450mhz the day it came out. my burner is like a 4xs speed i think it only works in 2xs speed now. i need some go fast. whats a good site to buy hardware online?? what should i do about a board and cpu. You were right i need to build!

Sounds like it's reading the old and just alittle of new or canceling out the old and reading the new for some reason or reading the 256 which is false and still using the old ram.Originally posted by dred:
i have a micronics c400 i just looked around it should handle like 780 something mbs of memory. i am looking to find a recent bios flash out there or something. its only reading the 256. if its not the BIOS then somethings messed.
