I began using computers in 1984. It was an Apple MacIntosh 128K. Needless to say, it was not a barn burner. Shortly after beginning to use computers I decided to begin learning all that I could about diagnosing problems. I knew this would save me a lot of frustration. I came to the HP Forums in 2002. I had just purchased my first HP computer and had a problem that I couldn't solve; even with all of that diagnostic training. I had my problem solved very quickly and decided to start helping members myself. I have been helping on the forums since that time.
