I had a cousin call me to repair her computer because she said it wasn't working. When I arrived at her house I could see that her system was powered up but her monitor was not turned on. I turned it on and she was amazed at how quickly I fixed it. It took me an hour to get her to understand that you had to turn both on. Anyways after showing her how to turn her system on and off she wants me to show her how to use it. I go to connect her to the net and there is no connection she had previously informed me that she was all set for the net. I look and she didn't have her phone line hooked to the modem. She was baffled why she couldn't just connect to the net and didn't have any idea why you had to connect the phone line. For days she kept uplugging the phone line and couldn't figure out why she lost her internet connection. She even had her computer sent to the shop because I refused to go back to her house. The repairman put a new modem in and delivered it to her house and didn't hook it up. Same problem. I finally got sick of it and duct taped the line into the modem. Haven't had a problem since then. She paid $800 dollars for the system last year and it has an old 486 processor with 32 meg of ram.
