I bought a second hand computer from a friend. He swears that he has never touched the inside of the comp.
Yesterday i formatted the hard disk. Today i want to install an OS and things just wont work.... when booting up it always locks up at Verifying DMI pool data.
So im trying to get this to work for 3 hours by now. And i opened the case everything looked fine at first sight ( + an Os win98 was installed on it be4). So normally things would work as they are supposed to. Now ive just seen that the hard disk supply cable was (split up) and also connected to the floppy drive.
out of experience i know that that can give trouble so i fixed that and now everything works perfect.
The same story counts for a friend of me who did his comp to the shop to repair something and he got him back also with the hard disk supply cable messed up with the drive floppy.
Im just wondering do the ppl at the computer store know what they are doing ???
IMO (what ive seen so far of them) they can only cash money. And service is always "very good", so they say.
Dont know if you guys ever met such "shop-dorks" who dont know how a comp works.
::If there is anyone that works in a comp-store, dont be offended, i only know shop-keepers from here in belgium and what ive learned about them, is that if theres something wrong with a comp dont bring it to the store coz they will solve your prob but create another one.::
