    nks Kimsland. I can get launched now. Just looking at your adedress.....Aaaaah, you live in Gods own country. Years ago in West affrica, my best mate was an Aussie, Colin, he came from Sydney. Lost touch with him now though, It's a bummer. All the best, (joe) jopras.

    No probs mate, I'll ask about if anyone knows him, shouldn't be too hard to track him down ;)
    Oh and we pronounce "Colin" as "Coln" leaving out the "I"

    Faulty hard drive

    Hi Tech Spot,
    I am Lieutenant Colonel Osman Jonah Sesay from the Sierra Leone Army. I recently bought a new Toshiba Laptop Windows 7 together with a WD External Hard Drive (250 GB ). The drive worked initially and after few weeks it stopped functioning on my computer. Every time I insert it, the computer will say the drive needs formatting. Even when I tried to format it , it does not work. The computer says wrong parameter is being used. I have tried the drive in several computers and its the same problem . I need to store very important military documents as a back up. Please help

    Xp freexes

    I have had my XP since 2002. I have had several freezes with it. What I have found is when the inside of the tower gets real dusty the computer gets hot and freezes. I take the side off and vacume inside and clean the fans. This helps, its like a having a new computer.

    Hi everyone. I'm new here. I recently built my first PC, or I like to say assembled it since I did not actually solder components to a board and wire it etc. I order my motherboard, power supply, memory, ATX mid tower, hard drives, and the processor from compusa, which seems like tiger direct. When I called to ask about a shipping issue tiger direct answered on the other side. lol.

    But anyways I hope to fit in as much as possible and looking forward learning new things.

    Hi everyone

    Hi. My name is Ann. I'm very very new to this. I'm not very knowlegable about the computer (at all), but am very interested in learning. I do have a problem with my computer that I don't know how to fix. It says I have a hacktool.rootkit and the virus protection I have on my computer doesn't fix it; it just blocks or quarantines it. Sometimes it says it removes it but every time I turn my computer off and back on it's there again. I don't know how to get rid of it. If anyone that has a ton of patience can help me I would so appreciate it.

    Hi Im new to this site. Im having a problem with my computer this morning. I have both IE and Firefox, for some reason I cant load certain sites like Facebook. It loads but it doesnt look right all the information in on the left side of the screen, no graphics or pictures and everything is line itemed if that makes any sense. I tried both with Firefox and IE, same thing happens when I try to do a google search, then other pages like this one looks perfectly normal. Also, everything is taking an extremely long time to load. Its a new computer could this be a virus? Please help. Thanks

    You should read the first post in this read as it describes How to Post a New Topic.

    You need to post your own new topic in your own thread so people will see it and can try to help. g'luck

    Hi vicki and welcome to the forums. Did not the camera come with a manual? You should be able to find a manual online (most likely in PDF format) from Gigaware.

    Youu are going to have to install your camera using the CD installation disk.
