I was on before...

I was on before but had to leave right away. My windows 7 was updated today but even before I get a quick message saying to connect my other apps on . Is that settings. My lap top is gone- I am on desk top. I have dell - several tears old. I keep getting scam calls saying they are microsoft. I am computer effecient and have no idea

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your computer? And what operating system are you running?

Where do I find the model? it is a dell

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

Today

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?

You don't call customers if something is wrong. I know they are scams? Do I have to buy a new laptop. It got soaked when a glass tipped over and will not turn on. Also I forgot my password ***** was given a temporary but had to leave

If water was spilled or liquid was spilled on the machine and it wont turn on, there may not be much we can do here to fix the machine without replacing parts.

And you are correct about those calls, no reliable tech support company including microsoft will ever call you. They have no way of knowing whether your computer is working or not.

With that being said, to see if the computer is repairable I need to ask you some questions. Lets start with the ful name brand and model of the Dell.

And is it a laptop or a desktop?

Thank you for your reply.

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
