Hi Everyone,
I've been working in hardware electronics since the mid seventies, predominantly aviation related.
Got interested in computers in the mid eighties which has never waned, have dabbled in programming but now nearing retirement seem to spend most of my time working on database solutions and fixing laptops for friends and contacts. Seem to be dealing with more motherboards nowadays which is why I've joined the forum for another handy tool in the box...

Hi Yess I am a girl. Any other girls here? So I'm 54 years old started tinkering with the first Pentium PC's. Over the years I have always repaired and changed computer components myself. Now I have an old but great condition Asus Motherboard P5P800SE whith bad capacitors and found this place to try and identify the brand and found a post with the exact same ones. ŁThis helped me a lot in my search. From a young age like 12years old, I have always been curious and independant and started reparing my walkman and all sorts of things (plumbing too, my cars and anything that needs repair. I love the challenge and the conquering part is so satisfying.

Anyway my electronic knowledge is basic but learning is what drives me in life that means musical instruments too. I studied Jazz music.

Thanks for a great forum and the people in it.

Hey Folks,

I'm Wes and I love vBulletin forums.

Hopefully I'll be able to contribute something here; I've gotten a lot of help from BadCaps over the years just from searching, and now I finally have to post a question of my very own!

Thanks!

Hello All,
I just found and joined this forum looking for the info on the Macbook retina 12 board 820-00244.
I have EE MS degree and work in high tech company. Sometimes I help my friends to fix their electronics as a hobby and not for business. It looks like this forum has a lot of usefull information.

Default Hi Guys and Gals. i am a new,new member I am Falco

Okay, hopefully, I am doing this right. I am 60 years young and an old hat at electronics, the first item I played around with was in 1971 and it was a big old round CRT TV. Fell in love with electronics of all sorts, I use to trace PC boards and pull parts manuals off the shelf to find out what the component pins did. back then it was almost impossible to acquire a service manual. I continued my passion for electronics self-teaching throughout the years even now, but electronic service paid little so I ended up doing different jobs Ie: Labore, mechanic, construction, electrical, plumbing. I earned my ham ticket and worked in the commercial 2way radio field for many years. at any rate, I feel as I can fix anything by providing enough time and funding I have no problem with the time it's always funding that is the obstacle. I am not going to list my achievements hear for it is long-winded.
I am happy to find a group that is knowledgeable enough to bounce ideas and mine for solutions.
Thank you for having me as a member and I hope to make many friends Via BadCaps Oh Those Caps. Dont yu just loveem.

I got inspired to start fixing my own stuff so I've taken the plunge into electronics repair and am happy to have stumbled into this space. It looks to be quite a lively forum with very helpful and knowledgeable people. I hope to be both of those someday too.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Denis here from Cape Town South Africa. Have been in electronic repair since '86 and specialized in Mac since '95. If the world was shaped like a human body, Cape Town would be at the but end when it comes to the supply chain. So a lot of salvage is used in the repair of computers especially laptops but its a job and it feeds the beast mostly.

Hi everyone! I'm Dimitry, a 32 year old gentleman from Spain. My dad is an electric engineer and I have always been surrounded with electronics until eventually learning how to solder. I have an obsession with anything electronic and I sometimes scavage things from the trash. The past 10 years I've been modding Game Boys and I love it. I also got into Arduino and my biggest dream is to develop an interactive toy.

A week ago I picked up a TV from the trash and repaired it. Seeing my potential, I got 2 more broken TVs off a second hand app. I love tracking down the issues and there's nothing like seeing the device power on after you succeded.
