Hooray !!! Good for you !
I remember when I took apart my old HP Vectra,..and put in another motherboard (an "Ebay special") and the thrill I got when the darn thing worked. I still have that computer, too (still works). It's a good feeling, isn't it? :popcorn:

I would of said that that was a binary code, but the 2 has thrown me off.

now is the time to get a T shirt:

"No,I won't fix your damn computer".

Once your friends and relatives find out that you are not afraid (as they are) of opening up a computer case .. your fate is sealed in concrete!

Yeah, it's pretty much awesome.
I had given the computer to a friend, and windoze crashed on him, so he gave it back minus the hard drive but plus a RAM upgrade, so I jacked a hard drive from an HP e-pc and popped it in (after taking it completely apart) and it worked.

Oh, I already had this role. anytime anything went wrong it was

"Hey, Cam! Come fix this!"
"ugh, what happened?"
"I dunno, IE just froze up on me!"


Yep, they refuse to use Firefox. dangit.

It's a inside joke a friend and I have. After I had to fix a mess he made of his computer he asked what would have happened if he turned it on. I only replied with "there would be 2's everywhere".

OH and use your power for good! I repair my friends computer all the time under one condition. If it's running windows you have to pay me. If it's running Ubuntu it's free.

Muahahahah!
