A paper trail is always the way to go if you need to prove something, whether it be good or bad.

If you want a raise or promotion, you should have documentation of what you have accomplished on the job that warrants the raise/promotion.

On the other hand, if you are being harrassed at work, you need some proof to back up your claim. Try to put all communication in writing. Document things as they happen.

Can you make them a power user? The Power Users group allows users administrative priveledges for software, but still restricts them as far as access to other's files.

Are you sure it's not your monitor or monitor cable?

If that doesn't work, try pulling the video card out and using the integrated video. If that works, you'll have to download the drivers for the other video card you were trying. Then you can put that card in.

Hope that helps.

I actually separate experience into different areas: personal experience, consulting experience, lab experience, production experience.

Experience in a production environment is COMPLETELY different than any other form. You actually deal with things not taught in a class and not working as they do in a perfect environment. Knowing how to deal with those situations is very valuable.

Consulting experience and lab experience are about the same: you work with things in theory and test them out, but if something goes wrong, that's where your job ends. You leave it up to the production people to fix it.

Personal experience is good, but if I have candidates with experience in a production environment, it just doesn't compare.

You have to gain your experience through the beginner level jobs- helpdesk, technician, or a computer repair shop. After that, you can start moving into better roles.

The other factor that I look at is the person's willingness to learn new things. And I look for expamles of a person taking initiative to take on new responsibilities without being told. That shows a lot about their ability to grow and adapt.

Just my opinion.

Look at your switch again, and use a different port.

Check computer for viruses.

Reimage the machine.

Then try replacing mobo.

Yes, you have to pay and recertify each year. There is nothing to the exams. They tell you to open a separate browser and use the online material while you answer the questions. ALL questions are straight forward and in the online study material.

Once certified, you can log in and order warranty parts directly, without having to talk to anyone. Since we have 4,000 Dells on our campus, it's a HUGE benefit for us.

My guess is it's a corrupt profile. Log on with another account, go to the Documents and Settings folder, delete the folder for the admin, then log back on as admin to create a fresh profile.

Well, quitting the industry before you ever get into the industry doesn't sound like a wise choice.

Get a job on a helpdesk, computer repair store, or as a technician. While you're getting real world experience, get some certs. A+ is always useful for people just starting out. Take at least one Microsoft exam so you can put MCP on your resume. After a year or two, start looking for a better paying job. If you have the moxy, work on getting your Bachelor's degree part time. Once you have a Bachelor's degree, some certs and a few years experience, you should be in pretty good shape.

Just my two cents. Good luck my friend.

Not enought info. It depends on how you specifically set up the GPO and how you limited it to certain people. It also depends on whether all computers are in the same domain. And what type of client you were logging on to (2000 or XP). Also depends on what other GPO's you have, and what level.

13  General discussions / General Discussion / Company encouraging braindumps? WTF? on: August 28, 2005, 01:12:08 AM
I don't care HOW somebody got their cert(s). As a hiring manager, I just ignore any certs that aren't backed up by direct real-world experience.

Certs enhance your real-world experience, nothing more. A cert with no experience is a waste of the ink that put it on the resume.

I would hire someone who braindumped his way throgh an MCSE if he had 5 years of experience in the field to complement it.

However, I wouldn't even consider someone who has several certs, but no experience to go with them, no matter how he/she got the certs.

And "Consultant" = Unemployed
If you are honestly good at what you do as a Consultant, you'll never want to work for the man. But if you can't find a real job and fill in the gap of the past x years as a "Consultant", that's just a red flag to me.

People should concentrate more on getting real-world experience in a production environment than getting certs.

Do any errors show up in the event logs?
15  General discussions / General Discussion / Dell Certs on: August 24, 2005, 12:25:25 AM
Our campus is all Dell, so I have all of their certs. HP/Compaq and IBM certs are just as easy. I had to get their certs for my last job.
