Default Hello all

Introductions is not my strong point, I have a Wife for that so will do my best.
Basically I was browsing tech forums to help with an issue I am having. I started reading your faq and rules and was impressed with how you deligate the forum. Then I started reading the posts from other users and you sound like a fun group, so decided to join and kickback.

I basically run my main system (the one that is dead) and that is a Asus A8N with a +3400, 2 gigs ram and a radion 9600 video card. It sits in the Armor II case from thermal. Not a dream machine but nice when it works .

I also have a laptop; low end I picked up at bestbuy, my wife mostly uses it for email and solitair. There is a third system in the house, acer my Father bought for my Daughter. Right now I have been using my friends XPS dell laptop to get my game fix.

I work for a company called BWG, we sell ext warranties for pretty much anything. I am in the tech dept, basic T/S to see if we can fix the issue over the phone or if the cust will need to have a hands on repair (grunt trouble shooting).
