Getting reacquainted with old...

Getting reacquainted with old computer.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

Compq Presario 5000 model number 5wv261

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

I would like to copy some old photos somhow.

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

While I was away someone hooked up a Dell dimension 3100 to verizon and aside from getting photos out I would like I to use it as another home connection. However I con't locate a certificate of Authenticity, (maybe internal), and can't find windows me disk.

You have to allow for my limits. In the sixties I was more or less the modem for jet aircraft and the largest computer in the world. In May of 70 when I went to Viet Nam the Air Force consolitdated pay records and the boolean algerbra inverted my pay as negative and that was cumulative and I went six months without pay and I satyed away from computers for thirty years. Then I was very busy until now.

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
