Who am I?
My name is Steve and I have been living in Tenerife since January 2005. I have been working with computers now for over 17 years and have built up considerable experience of using many different types of Operating Systems. These have mainly been different versions of Microsoft Windows from 3.1, 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10 but has also covered Mac OSX and SuSe Linux.
I assembled my first computer while at University as my course required me to have my own computer. As I became more comfortable in using it I started investigating more and more features of Windows and my computer in general. When things went wrong I had to figure out how to fix them. This started my interest in computer repairs and how I learnt to fix many common problems with Windows.
After I graduated from Bristol University with a 2:1 Masters Degree in Electronic Engineering I worked as a Software Engineer for a large defence company writing and testing software. I also put my Windows knowledge to good use as my colleagues would often ask me for help instead of IT Support when they had computer problems.
Over time I found that I needed to update my computer - more memory, a better graphics card for the latest games, a modem so I could connect to the internet and more. I installed all of these myself and had no problems.
Now, I have built and repaired over 1000 computers in England and Tenerife.
I can repair any computer regardless of the language.
I look forward to seeing you.
