I found this forum whilst trying to fix a friends PC, a new one with Vista, which had been working for 5 months with no problem. Eventually found the fault to be the memory. Anyway, I am Andy and seem to be, without being boastful, the person that most of my friends call with IT issues having built about 16 in about 5 years plus a few upgrades. Working in the electroincs field most of the stuff makes more sense to me. Interests are mainly photography, sea fishing, computers and my new one model helicopters (RC versions, which curently has only left the ground twice, but I have crashed at least twice as many times). I hope that I may be able to contribute as much as I can as well as gleen as much from yourselves. Thanks for reading.
