Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the
column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear
Webby Humor Letter.
This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly
because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

10/17/04: How to tell speed and type of a computer
Tech Support Pits:
Go to TOP
I am considering buying a computer from an aquaintance.
How can I quickly tell what speed and type it is?
Just hold down the Windows key and hit the Pause/Break key.
It may take a second or two, but then Windows will show you
all you need to know, even which version of Service Pack
patch has been installed.
Right now you can pick up perfectly good computers really
cheap, because they had become nearly unusable when
somebody installed the SP2 patch without doing the
necessary homework. Just format the hard drive and do
a fresh installation of Windows onto it.
