How much to reboot?

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by =?ISO-8859-1?Q?R=F4g=EAr?=, Feb 7, 2007.

  1. I'm filling in today on the phone some and just got a call from a
    customer that as soon as I answered the phone said in hillbilly accent
    "How much you charge to reboot my computer?" Through my gift of divine
    and mystical interpretations I figured out what she wanted. She wanted
    to have XP reinstalled. When I asked her why, "the modem don't work".

    I told her to unplug the all the cables and bring just the big box in.
    It took several more minutes of wrangling to figure out that she was
    talking about a laptop. Damned if I know if her problem has anything to
    do with a modem. Hopefully I won't be here when she shows up.
