Windows 7 Ultimate X64

Guys, there is no reason to get angry. If you do not want to post, don't post cause no one is forcing you.
This is supposed to be a FUNNY thread, and yes, I do have the common sense to know everyone is not tech savvy.

The way your original post was stated, at least to most of us it didn't come off as a joke.

Dual-boot: Windows 7 HP 32-bit SP1 & Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP2.

As I have worked in a community centre for foreign people to use computers and the internet, I have had a few as people come from poorer backgrounds etc. I remember once a person switched on the monitor (CRT) and stared at the blank screen thinking why their computer wasn't working, when I went to them and turned on the tower/desktop they saw their stupid mistake and we both had a good laugh.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Since I am the only programmer at home, when the computer freezes or it is unplugged (Yes, it happens!) they all come to me and say "Stefany the computer is not working" and every time I have to ask them, if I am not there

"Guys, for the hundredth time, how exactly isn't it working?"

Windows 10 64bit

I got one that was funny that I remember though I wouldn't consider it to be stupid question what so ever just found it amusing. There was this girl who was kind of new to computers and she asked me since i sit next to her why her computer monitor wouldn't display a picture. So I looked and noticed it that someone had dimmed the screen since the monitor light was on and found it was using a black black background and hid the windows bar lol and just had to put the brightness up and unhide the bar and background.Found that hilarious,had us both laughing. Who ever was using it in the previous class had to have done it
