Computer Hope is an amazing tool to have, especially when you're in a bind and can't seem to be able to iron out a problem. This is an amazing site, with clear cut logical and accurate information. I am learning a lot of very important applications that I had no idea would make my computer experience a lot more efficient and exciting to say the least. It doesn't seem to be as intimidating now because I have a direct line of information here to help me maneuver my way through most any problem that I encounter. (Anonymous)

Outstanding website!!! I've viewed others, but yours is BY FAR the easiest to come close to understanding what these terms mean (equivalents). My 10-year-old grandson was asking me what the various computer terms meant. Well, in looking up the answer, I came across your site. FINALLY, a way to put these words into use with common everyday items with which both he and I were able to grasp. I can't tell you how much more meaningful this makes these terms! First thing I'm going to do is to save a link to this site, because I know my other grandchildren will eventually be interested in knowing this too! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!. (CLDR)

I appreciate Computer Hope starting from the beginning, assuming we know nothing about a subject. If a reader knows something, a review is beneficial to anyone. (Crook)

I love your site, very informative, easy to reference, and user friendly. (Dponce)

Good checklist for computer cleaning. (Dave)

It was easier than I thought. Thank you so much. Being of an age when computers were not used in the work place and therefore not computer literate I found the instructions simple and to the point - wish everyone could do the same. Thank you again. F. (Fresita)

Well explained. Gonna send to my teacher. (Pascal Junior LUC)

I've never had anyone suggest that I might need to drain the electricity from my laptop to get it to work before. You guys brought my laptop back to life! Many thanks. (Anonymous)

Thank you SO MUCH. I learned quite a bit from your site, and also found the answer to the problem I was having. (Greatjoy)

I'm glad the site is still around. 20 yrs ago, This site and a really old ibm dos manual helped me better understand dos editor, commands, paths & syntax. I was able to bring 4 pc's back to factory from blue screen and no power at all, thanks to the motherboard and hdd info through serial numbers on your user friendly site of shared knowledge, Thanks!. (Ro)

I just wanted to say thanks for replacing confusion with a simple answer (unlike some other websites). (Taras)

Hi, The nicest and easiest information site I've visited. Using Avira Search you were near the bottom of the first page. Certainly glad I scrolled to the bottom.

You certainly must get great satisfaction from what you've accomplished. I'm sure I am not the only one giving you/your site "Kudos". (Eugenia)

For people like me who is not so familiar with computers, the definitions are clear and easy to understand, providing examples to reinforce those definitions makes it even easier. (Jjmore)

I searched several other sites looking for a solution to this, but only found the answer here. Thanks very much. (Lionel)

It was a very annoying error until I read how to fix it (non-bootable hard drive). Thanks for the help. I'm trying to set up 2 different versions of Windows in 2 partitions on my hard drive so I've no doubt I'll be back for more help soon:) Kind regards Matthew. (Matthew)

I have now appreciated Computer Hope for 15 years. Thank you for the excellent service. (John)

This was WONDERFUL! Your site was easy to find using Google. You gave the correct diagnosis based on what I observed (3 beeps and then no POST). You gave some recommendations of things to try, and one of them (swapping the memory sticks around) actually resolved the issue. I don't know why, but I just booted my computer, ran linux on it for about 45 minutes, and then shut it down and I am going to run MEMTEST+86 on it all night. Thank you. (Jeff)

Your instructions are economical on words, yet very easy to understand without losing any of the important information needed to solve problems and get things done. (Porter)

I couldn't remember if my old Compaq system running Xubuntu from a couple years ago was 32- or 64-bit. Your instructions to look for an "lm" in the output with the command line "grep flags ..." then it's 64-bit in the terminal was super slick and efficient. Well done! :). (Doug)

I am using Microsoft Windows 2003 and accidentally entered a command on the keyboard that needed to be turned off immediately. I forgot what the command was so I went searching on the web for answers. Every site that came up was giving me directions for Microsoft Windows XP, 10, 8, Apple XOS, etc. I was getting very frustrated I had already tried everything and what seemed like visited every web site there was. Finally I came across your website and the information you provide was exactly what I needed. I did what you recommended and it fixed my problem the first time around.
