Hi,

I am a database administrator from Turkey and now living in the UK.
Every broken thing in my house should be diagnosed and tried to be fixed by myself and last week my wife spilled a cup of coffee on her laptop. This will be challenging for me with the forums help i hope i will fix it.

Thanks in advance to all the people for their help.

Hey there everyone. I'm an amateur-level tinkerer with just enough knowledge to be dangerous. I'm looking for information on how to possibly revive my very old Toshiba TV because I'm too cheap to buy a new one if I can repair the one I have!

Hi, a mechanically minded Jake here. Hoping I can shed some light on my Ford's PCM and how to fix it so that I don't need to buy a new one and have it flashed by the dealer. I remember using this site more than a decade ago when I was fixing a motherboard that I had in a gaming computer, back when I gamed. Those were the days......

And if you wouldn't mind to keep this thread "clean" let's try to keep the the chitchat (i.e. even the welcome to the board replies) to a minimum or this thread may get to 100 pages fast

So I'll start things off :

My name is petabyte and I'm a forum junkie. :oops: I've been off the wagon for a number of years and countless times I've tried to stop but it's useless.. I need to feed my learning addiction.. :!:

Now just a bit about me.. I'm a fairly secretive guy in terms of privacy on the net.. especially when the things you write are visable to anyone with a net connection. But I love to share the info and knowledge I have, so that's why I'm here, to share and learn.

my formal education is that of an electronic engineer and I held a field service position with a firm for over 20 years.. that job is gone now along with company car and laptop <cry> oh well..
So needless to say (but i will) I've always tinkered with things.. yes, a hacker.. (too bad that term lost it's orignal meaning) a hardware hacker mostly.. hacking fixes in whatever I find that breaks.. (except for cars, I have friends for that) I got started a little late into the computers, my first box was an ibm pc-xt with a whopping 10meg HD,blazing fast 4.66mhz 8086 processor, 640k mem running dos 3.3.. man was I cool back then.. :roll: nevermind..

so these days, I'm forced to be a software guy as well.. as I fix pc's for friends and that usually means cleaning virus/trojan/adware and reinstalling OS's.. yeah hardware breaks but not that often :cry: so as a result, I keep up on my software knowledge by visting a few security forums.. and trolling around a few hardware forums as well.

now I found this place from a thread at motherboards.org/forums
where I've been hanging out lately.. it's a nice friendly place with some pretty smart people.. mostly, of course, it's about mobo's.. So this person mentioned badcaps.net and I recalled reading articles a year or so ago about the faulty caps and was curious as to what you guys were up to.. and I said "w00t.. they have a forum"..

and so now.. you're stuck with me :P

so what's your story ? come on.. give it up..
New to site, just wanted to say hello and that I am excited about this community and resources we bring together.

I think I should note first that Petabytes original post said something about keeping it short or this thread will get over 6 pages, and I believe mine will fall at page 1072 or so.

I have always been the DIY kinda person, my moto being "Why pay someone to half ass it when I can half ass it myself for free and learn something in the process?" Mechanical things have always been pretty easy for me, there are parts, one or more is not functioning properly so replace what is broken and voila, you have a perfectly functioning thingamajig again. I started with computers sometime in the 90's, mostly just tearing them up. I finally started attempting repairs myself and realized that electronics werent as magical as I had thought (though I still have a ton to learn). I have been teaching myself the ins and outs of all things electrical for a few years and though I am getting better I still get stuck way too much for my liking.

I absolutely love forums and YouTube. In my opinion there are no better ways to use/abuse the internet than to learn something new!
