Need help with your PC?

You've come to the right place.

Well, sort of. I don't really want to send the message that this will be the Holy Grail of all tech help sites -far from it, I'd just like to help PC users in anyway I can.

If you've got a problem and you don't have the time to search for the solution in the numerous tech support forums found online, try dropping a post here and we'll see what we can do.

I hope I can help.

A new beginning.

Hello everyone.

I just had an idea of putting up this blog in order to broaden the range of people I may be able to help.

Prior to this, I have a blog for people whose laptops have the Intel X3100 graphics solution. With all the people that it was reaching our to and helping, I decided to share whatever knowledge I've gleaned from my 10 years in IT, building and maintaining PCs, troubleshooting both hardware and software and try to give any help to those in need of it.

These days, you seldom get stuff for free. Break something, and someone, somewhere will want to charge you for fixing it.

I learned most of my stuff the old-fashioned way: through apprenticeship. Back when I was a kid, my uncle (who always had the latest, top-of-the-line PC) always had a tech upgrade his machine. Whenever the tech came, I'd be there to observe and then the tech would give me pointers every now and then, allowing me to help replace parts, update drivers and so forth.

I am now giving it back to the community in the form of this blog. If you experience a PC problem and need some help, post it here and let's see what we can do to solve it.

Now for the obligatory disclaimer:

This site is put up for free information to all those who need it. Every tip found herein has worked in more than one computer system but that may not be a guarantee that it will work for you.

As always, the necessary precautions are advised to be taken before you apply any of the instructions found herein. The blog owner, contributors, and the publisher cannot not be held responsible for the loss of data and/or income arising from implementation of such tips.

There. Now that we have that out of the way, rest assured all tips will be screened for accuracy and safety. I will have the blog set up so that posts will need to be moderated before being posted.

The PC is one big mix of pros and cons, for us who know it by heart, it is mostly pros, but for others, they experience the opposite. The PC gives one the freedom to choose your own components, according to your needs. You can start with a simple, cheap, but capable system then later upgrade it gradually by adding/replacing certain components like the video card, the sound card, the memory, the processor, the hard drives, the optical drives, the power supply, and heck, even the motherboard itself.

For all these conveniences and possible combinations, therein lies the cons: with all these combinations possible, there will always be issues with device compatability, driver compatability, and so forth. Throughout these years, I've learned that there is usually a generic solution to a problem but some problems need a specific solution -one which is almost always unavailable to the usual end-user. This is where this blog comes in.

We'll try to make this blog a lot like Handy Manny (the Playhouse Disney Cartoon show):

"You break it, we'll fix it".
