How techno dumb are you?

I am so techno dumb I thought I needed the router plugged into the desktop to work on the laptop even though I’ve not used the desktop for months because basically it’s f%^*ed .

I consider myself tech savvy. Not a genius at it, but definitely enough to get by.

I’m about as techno dumb as you can get. I have very good general background knowledge about the world in general, but, as for computers, I work by muscle memory. I just follow my nose. I do get a lot out of my computer, though - by learning things about the world at large.

Whenever my computer breaks, I give it to my friend so she can negotiate with the tiny wizards inside who make the internet show up. It usually involves something about watching less porn :confused:

Not that tech savvy but I do know if you search for “google” in google you break the internet.

A few days ago my pc made an automatic Windows update and when it restarted, everything in my laptop wasn’t there, simply vanished, documents, pictures, etc… I made a search on google, found that it was a common problem, tried a handful of ways I read might help but didn’t, and then finally decided in a kind of faith oriented way to restart the computer and hope everything was there this time.

It worked.

Always turn it off and on again before calling the tech support. It’s what I know.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Yep, as I said, that’s what I did and it solved my problem! :grin:

Whenever my computer crashes, I take it apart and expect to find a little Snowman who has lost his hat. Just put the hat back on the Snowman, and my computer will be fine again.

Sadly though, it’s usually a little more involved than that.

I cracked a big smile at that! :grin:

Oddly enough, most of the infections I saw on PCs owned by d00ds were from pr0n. With the gals it was from playing free games online. I had the local high school wanting to put a work experience student into my PC repair store. Told them NO because there was no way I could keep from exposing him to pr0n, which I’d be liable for.

That’s what I do when my internet connection goes down. Unplug the router,count 60 and plug it back in again.
