Yep, I am that guy. My current system is flawless, so were my previous systems. Also, when I build custom systems for people, they too are flawless, until a week later when I get the call; “My mouse button isn’t clicking the button when I click the clicker and now my screen flickers, what’s wrong?” Well, I would answer honestly, but you wouldn’t understand that either. “Try selecting the active window”, I tell them. "Huh?” I again reiterate what I’ve said. And still they do not get it.
I’m sorry, but some people just shouldn’t own a computer. I’m not saying that I know everything about computers, but for some reason, people think that I do. Sure I’m a computer nerd, I admit it. But let’s be serious here folks, you should at least know the basics by now, especially after I wrote you CUSTOM instructions for each specific task that you requested and you still don’t understand it.
If you have any OS under Win2K, you WILL GET MEMORY ERRORS NO MATTER HOW MUCH PHYSICAL MEMORY YOU HAVE!!! That is just a part of the earlier Windows versions that suck, (Ex. Win95-ME). Without going into detail, the memory handling of these versions are very poorly designed.
For some reason, I am one of the few people who rarely encounter such errors as described in the earlier posts. I running all kinds of apps simultaneously too. Now my father on the other hand, will almost ALWAYS encounter these errors. I have no idea why other than to attribute it to that famous “operator error” that you so often here from us computer nerds. Just what are you doing to cause such errors? It can’t be the downloading of porn, 'cuz I have lots of that. Is it the MP3’s? No. How about Bonzai Buddy? That’ll cause all kinds of shit to go wrong. Same goes for all those “Sign up now” icons on your desktop when you first get your pc. Do yourself a favor and do not for the love of God go near these icons. Find someone who knows what there’re doing and get that crap uninstalled and deleted permanently.
Does something seem strang about your desktop or programs? Take note: When going to uninstall something, please don’t go to the actual program folder and delete it’s contents. Try this instead: >Start button >Settings >Control Panel >Add remove programs. This will make your life and mine, a lot easier. I cannot count the number of times people have done this and wonder “What happend? I tried to uninstall it but now this other crap is screwed up.”
Me, “Did you use ‘add remove programs’?”
Them, “What’s that?”
Me, “Please customer, here’s a bucket of clues, take one.”
So you don’t know what’re doing. Look in ‘Help’ or find help. That’s how I’ve learned, and with some patience, you can too. Do just do something thinking it will work.
I’m not talking about those of you who get these errors, correct it and learn from it. I’m talking about the people who get the same errors everytime and I tell them how to deal with it and they still don’t get it. Just what are you doing to get these errors?
