  1. I am sorry to hear things are not going well. It takes practice to get the hang of setting up a computer from scratch.

    It is really important to take things slowly, including software! Only do the basics (dont even copy media files such as Video or music until the programs are clearly working well).

    If you care to, It would be cool to see the insides of your system some time!

  2. No worries. I was in your shoes months back doing exactly the same thing you do, and only realise I have to go back to Sim Lim to change the RAM. And then later kanna’ virus. Only difference is my virus was another kind and my deadlines are major academic projects. Keep it goin!!
