Hello to All.

I grew up through the 70's / 80's with the age of the self build pc's such as the Nascom. After receiving my degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, I moved into a design career designing and building 386 and 486 pc's as well as, one of the first pc plug in boards to drive the STN LCD flat panels that were hitting our shores at that time. I continued in that industry, designing control interfaces for LCD and plasma devices until 2006, when flat panels had become standardized component parts.

Nowadays I do I.T. support of all types including monitor / tv repair.

What annoys me the most is the lack of schematic diagrams for modern equipment, making many, probably simple repairs, too time consuming to be financially viable, and hence propagating the 'throw away' society we live in today.

Hi, all. We’ve been experiencing what I’ll call a nuisance issue with our TV for some time. I’m sure there is a fix for it and believe the answer is somewhere in these pages. Glad to have learned about this forum.

Hi all, new member here Found the site while looking for a way to remove a BIOS password for an HP Elitebook 840 G2. I've already asked HP for SMC.BIN reset file which did not work - I suspect because previous owner removed RTC battery and system date is way off (HP files have a 7 day window..?)... Anyway, I'm just about to buy a TL866CS and a Pomona SOIC8 SOP8 Chip IC Test Clip Adapter so I can read an write the BIOS. I've been in IT for quite a few years but this will be my first IC (re)programming using such tools. Anyway, just wanted to say HI!!! and get my first post out there. Hope you are all well and thanks for the superb site & info!!!!

schloofy's the name and I'm strictly an amateur. With enough knowledge to burn down a house. Hasn't happened yet, but I'm insured in case. Great looking forum with lots of info and a friendly group of users.
