When joland's hard drive died, she went out and bought another one, as she explained in this week's highlighted post.  She installed it correctly, but after turning her laptop on, she received a "no boot device detected" error. She was stumped on how to proceed, but she was prepared with his recovery disks in hand.


top20_2011-08-26.jpgWell, she definitely came to the right place, because one of our top contributors, pepe999, knew exactly how to help her out.  Joland would need to restore the system using the recovery disks, and pepe999 not only gave clear instructions, he provided reasons behind each step. 


After quickly getting everything working, Joland came back to offer some really fantastic thank yous: "You are a genius!!! Thank you so much! Hugs to you!!!"  Great work, pepe999!  We really appreciate everything you do here, and joland does as well.


Now, one of my favorite parts of the week... announcing the Top 20 Posters!  In first place, for what I believe is the first time ever, we've got Paul_Tikkanen with nearly 200 posts!  Way to step it up, Paul!  Following him in second is DavidPK, with Hanspuppa in third.  Congratulations, gentlemen. 


Our thanks go to all forum members who helped someone out the forums this week.  Your willingness to step in and offer your knowledge is so greatly appreciated.
