Customer Question
bought a new laptop computer...
bought a new laptop computer to replace my old one. Geeks at Best Buy programmed the unit. However, they were unsuccessful in allowing me to access the internet. My old one, which is still functioning although very slow, uses Google Chrome - I'mm on e-mail 90% of the time. At the present time I have a brand new laptop which I cannot use because I cannot access internet. Can you help? Thanks in advance.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
