Customer Question
I need to use...

I need to use Skype - I have used it before but under the auspices of Conscious Living who I used to work for and who gave me this little laptop as a gift. No one is available who can recall the password ***** gave me for the Skype I used during the time I was working for them. So I need to set up my own Skype and maybe need to set up my own microsoft account. - Colleen

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

It is a very small HP (pink in colour) - Windows 8.1

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

No - unless there has been an automatic update

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

X64 base processor - not sure if this info is helpful though...

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
