Just bought this computer used today and know zip about making it mine.

Posted

I'm pretty hopeless at this. Just bought it this aft. Now I need to get on line and get things back to normal. Don't know where to start. My laptop has a bad hard-drive. It's on the way out. I prefer desktop anyway. So I sprung for this used computer, which so far has nothing on it. I have no idea what the first step is. So far, I like this unit. But I'm in the dark as to what I should be doing.

This is probably not a Firefox related question so I will close it.

If it is about Firefox please post again asking specifically about your Firefox problems use /questions/new/desktop. General article that may help with Firefox on a new computer


If you have a general computer or Windows problem please look for some other forum for instance sevenforums.com
