When people ask you for stuff and then do not listen...

Ask if you have any computer questions, chat about electronics, etc.

When people ask you for stuff and then do not listen...

Do you also get this sometimes? People asking you for anything computer related because they are technology dyslexic or simply have no interest, you tell them what you think of the subject and they nod, say yes but THEY DO NOT LISTEN!

In my case its about a shitass old laptop which my niece got for playing Sims 3, the thing has a Sempron 1.8 gHz processor(!) so that is a no no... Today she calls me and tells me the screen won't turn on anymore and that the adults in the house tried to run the game nonetheless (which I believe to have overheated + killed the videocard).

And who is supposed "to come over and take a look at it" to "maybe fix it" ?

Yep right. =_=

Can't say that I've ever had that happen to me... but then I'm somewhat technologically illiterate myself.

I feel your pain. I set up the router network at home. Left specific instructions on how to add people to it, etc, etc.

Did mom bother to listen? No. Who had to talk my little brother through fixing things over the phone after I moved away? yeah, you guessed it :p

I dunno, it bugs me when people tell me how to do computer things, so I am the opposite. xD

It doesn't mind me when people ask me how to do stuff.. I guess it would if I give advice and they don't believe me. Generally it is what ends up fixing it and they go "why didn't you tell me!?" :doh:

I had the same thing happen to me like a month ago, My ex was trying to run Sims 3 on her stupid netbook with no video card..all she said was laptop and I went through all this crap for nothing, it wasnt until she told me she purchased a dvd drive to connect with her laptop did I realize something was wrong. I admit I should have gone through some of the other trouble shooting problems before jumping the gun. I figured after 10 months with me she would have learned about video cards, me and her even went through a big thing about them when Sims 3 first came out. But oh well.
Unless I have a script I suck at trying to help people out with computer problems, its better if im just there to do it.

I totally forgot I wrote this thread, I must have been in a ragefit XD

Turned out the laptop worked perfectly as soon as I was sitting there... I dunno what she did with it. Game seems to run, I just wonder how long lol. But oh well, not my problem.

It makes sense, they're raised into it where adults have to learn. ^_^
