Greetings from Wales

  1. Hello, as per system generated suggestion here I am to introduce myself.
    My name is Jess, I'm 28 from Wales in the UK.
    I've joined TechSpot as I have just developed an active interest in building and upgrading PCs.
    Basically I started off with a shop bought Compaq Presario several years ago. I decided to upgrade the RAM and successfully managed to burn out the motherboard (I'm not quite sure *how*, basically put memory in and was greeted with a kind of sizzling noise and burning smell when I turned the PC on...... static perhaps). This led me into reading up on PCs as I thought I'd rather repair my PC myself.
    I successfully replaced the motherboard and the rest as they say is history.

    I'm looking at now building a second PC and using one as a backup - you know, in case my "tinkering" goes horribly wrong or something:0)
    No doubt I will be asking you all silly questions over on the other forums.....

    Hi Jess, welcome to TechSpot! :wave:

    Please be sure to read the guide in my signature and to search the Web and the TS forums before posting any questions. It would also help if you would fill out your computer's specs in your user profile.

    Enjoy your stay at TS!

    Regards :)
