Got off the phone with their manager (well, manager of tech support - phone help) and he said I should have gotten a slip of paper telling me that the very first thing they do to all computers is format the harddrive and reset it to factory default settings.
So yes, HP has a bunch of uneducated monkeys running their tech support department. If the format and reload does not work to solve the problem, the monkey is trained to bring the computer to a CompTIA certified computer repair technician, if they cannot fix the problem, it goes to a REAL computer technician!
Why were you stuck in the Army’s camp for misguided little boys so long, NCSC?
Well, originally I was there for Infantry Training for the PA National Guard (11C, my local guard unit was Combat Support, to had to learn to fire 4-deuces). But, my knees that had been patched back together after I tore them up at USAFA failed again…
But, rather than let a perfectly good former Academy puke go to waste, and since they were shorthanded in my Bat, they turned me into a Unit Supply NCO and Unit Armorer. Went from Trainee to Trainer overnight. Went from Barracks to BEQ. And spent a year wearing a “Follow Me” patch instead of my “Bloddy Bucket” until my med board finally was processed.
Yep… it SUCKED! But I loved it 😄
Ugh, yea the med-board process SUCKS for trainees! They tried to make me go that route, I told em unless they could guarentee me a 30% or more disability they could shove it up their rosey red buttocks! Then they tried to Chapter 5-1-2 me (medboard without a voluntary subject) and I called my congresswoman (who, since I’m in IL is a democrat) and she stopped that cold.
Now I’m assigned to the IL Nat’l Guard as in their IT dept. But hey, at least I don’t have to move!
As for my AC being “broken” in Georgia, it was not Rune. There just wasn’t an AC there! Silly army…like we all want to camp or something…sheesh!
