    Very simple Question.

    What do you want the next session to be about?

    Try to keep it computer related or A/V wiring cause I don't know a ton about other stuff.

    Memory. It's a simple component that a lot of people don't understand.

    I have been working in IT for about 3 months now and have no idea what BIOS is.

    Also how does the registry set itself up, I mean I know its broken into pieces and if I wanted to go in a clean certain parts where could they be found.
    e.g. I know how to clear out a specific typed URL (no not porn, don't want my girlfreind to find out I look up relationship advice)
    Other things along those lines that you don't really need like maybe setup files or logs.

    BIOS- Basic Input Output system. Basically it's a thing on your computer that helps it start up and shut down, it will remember your settings on things like RAM timings, boot sequence, main video card, etc. It's powered by that small battery on your motherboard, once that battery burns out then you're done and need to get a new one and put all of your correct settings back in.


    I just figured that I'd answer your question right there, don't need a whole session on something like that.

    I can't really help with registry because I myself do not understand it very well, but maybe someone else can help with that.;)

    thanks alot, now that I know what it is, how do I find it?

    I mean is there somewhere you can go to check out what your BIOS settings are or to change them?

    if you are using a PC then usually all you have to do is hit delete until the BIOS comes up, but depending on your computer there may be a little thing saying to hit a certain combination of buttons to bring up the bios.


    Try hitting delete over and over again when you restart your computer, if windows loads then you went too far and need to reset again.;)

    The BIOS will generally look like this.

    I'm not good with .bmp or jpg really, however, I am pretty good with Firefox, IE, and System info. (check RAM, processor speed, Video Card, etc).


    But i doubt that we need a session on all of that stuff.

    But how about a short lesson on how you can customise the look and feel of Windows to something you'd much rather have?

    hmm, that'd be good, but a lot of people have vista I still use XP so I don't know a lot of how vista works, I know that there are some differences.

    I'd include stuff like how to check hard drive space, video card memory, etc if i did a full windows class.
