hehe fran's just UBER Chic...not UBER Geek....
Monkey you know me so well!
Even before I brought it back from the tech shop I got him to save all the docs to disk.
Do I need to back up the programs? Can I? When I got it I put Open Office on it because that's what they use at my son's school ... so that's no problem.
I meant reinstall cause that's what the tech suggested, however, I am open to your valued suggestions. If it would be better to try a repair I could do that ... so long as you hold my hand!
The only time I have ever looked inside a computer was yesterday when I was filling the trailer with junk to go to the tip (dunno what you call the tip! - you know, the place where you dump all your junk!). I had a very, very old machine hanging around and thought I'd peek in and take a look ....
I decided there and then that I would rather spend my spare fun time cooking up a gourmet meal or digging in the garden!
Do I need the original disks to do a repair?
Edit: Oh, and bodmad, I certainly don't mind you butting in.
