Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have a question about a solution offerred by Beni S-P at FixYa.

Beni S-P offerred a solution to my problem (the solution was posted today; my initial inquiry was posted on 10-28-07): it was suggested that I start the PC in safe mode to then use the "msconfig" function (which I've used before). However, How do I start the PC in Safe Mode??? I'm not being given that option when trying to boot the PC. HELP. Thank you.

Should I buy or lease a retail POS system?

Whether you buy or lease a retail point of sale system depends on your budget. Many technology vendors today offer flexible leasing options for retail POS software, including 100% financing. By leasing the retail software and/or the point of sale hardware, you can reduce the initial start-up costs associated with a new retail point of sale system.

You are experiencing what referred to in the computer world as a dead computer system.

You either have a dead power supply or a dead computer mainboard or a dead Processor.
However it may also be a short circuit some where in your computer system.

I would like to know if i could get any job online.searched through the internet but most of them were of no use.please do help

If you are looking for a few reputable websites where you can find a career that you are looking for, please check the following website resources by clicking on the blue colored text.

Career builder -This site offers resume building tools, resume critique tool to help you improve your resume to have a better chance of getting an interview, numerous other search options for schools, salary calculators, skills training and much more. This is one of the top level job search and career sites.

Monster -This is another good career search site that also offers good career building tools like Career Builder.

Job Hunt -This site offers many of the same career tools plus videos, help from job search experts, job skills employers look for, and more.

Craigs list -This is a site where you can find job opportunities and this specific link will take you to a list of U.S. cities so you can easily locate your area or area that may be near to you. This site is not specifically geared towards career building like the previous mentioned ones, but you can find a job opportunity using it. This site may not be as reliable and consistent for jobs as the others, but it still may be useful. This site can also be used to find things to buy or even sell, so that is why I added it.

Free Resume Templates -This site offers free resume examples and templates. The better your resume, the better chance you have obtaining a job you are applying for. -This site is widely used to find tons of different types of information. I have specifically linked it to the free resume examples and tutorials to help you get started quicker and find the information you need much easier.

There are other great resources out there online and with a little research, I am sure you will find what you are looking for. It is important to remember that when posting any personal information online about yourself, there is always a risk of that information being used for identity theft, fraud, etc. Please exercise caution when posting personal information online and research every site to ensure they are a legitimate resource to use. I always like to warn people about security so that they will be informed and be cautious.

When searching the job market for any job, it is important to prepare your resume properly and make copies and take them to all the businesses you would like to gain employment because the more exposure your skills get through your resume, you increase your chance of gaining employment. Doing your resume online will give you a lot of exposure and many employers are now using the internet to find members for their work force because it is easier and quicker for them.

I hope that the information that I provided helps you reach all of your career goals so you find the perfect job you are looking for. I wish you all the best and please let us know if you need further assistance.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

Hi there.
If you get a security window pop up that says you are installing unsigned drivers, just click on install anyway and the drivers will install for the audio.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
