minute it was fine, the next...
are so complicated these days that there are a million ways for them to
go wrong. So I won't say I've seen it all before. Sometimes I do not immediately
know how to fix a problem, but I always know how to find out. I've never
had a problem I gave up on.
a selection of problems I've solved in the last couple of weeks:
that ran slowly because of the heinous amount of Spyware on them. Actually,
I've seen 3 of these in the last fortnight. I cleaned them up and they
are now perky. I also introduced measures to stop it happening again.
computer that was displaying a lot of things in italic. This puzzled
me until I realised that someone had inadvertently deleted some fonts.
I re-installed the fonts and straightness was restored.
computer that was ignoring its keyboard and mouse, which made it hard
to talk to! I managed to get into the BIOS and told it not to be silly.
CD drive that had stopped reading CDs. No point in a CD drive like that,
so I replaced it.
- A computer that had stopped picking
up email. Some foolish Spam filter had messed up the settings.
See if you can stump me with a problem so difficult that
I can't fix it. Because if I can't solve it, you don't pay.
