My new laptop just arrived

UPS delivered it, cat litter, and a case of protein water to my doorstep. Now I have to try to figure out how to set it up. My future ex said that I should be able to get it working out of the box. He has always done that stuff for me. So we will see how far I get with it. I'm sure he will need to stop by one evening this week to help me but I'm trying to be positive and think that I can get it at least up and running. Wish me luck!

If at first you don't succeed, then call the geek squad.

You are extremely smart, stop doubting your abilities to open a laptop and put the battery in, nowadays they are ready. You can do anything if you just try.

I hope it is ready because I really don't know what I'm doing.

Not to discourage you, we just bought a new computer also. The salesman said, 'Just take it home and plug it in!' This sounded so easy and that's what we tried to do. There were all kinds of things that needed to be done, we had no idea how to get it going! Ours is a desktop, sorry for being so darn negative

@NJChicaa Jay has a friend who helps us out, a young man that knows a lot about these devices. He explains it clearly, then Jay does whatever he instructed.

You can do it, setting up a laptop is generally pretty straight forward!

@NJChicaa - I'd like to say that it shouldn't be too tough but there are some things that aren't explained very well. For instance, when you go to log in it's going to ask you whether you want to create a Microsoft account or use a local login. The really don't explain the differences between the two accounts so it's kind of difficult to decide which way you'd like to go. But I think you'll get it figured out. If not, you can always reset it and start again. Good luck.

Good luck! Friend wanted to buy a new Chromebook for me..but of course he wanted to pay out the nose for it. The one here is OK for now.

My husband asked me about a Chromebook. We use them at work, though, and I don't like them.

It may be frustrating (that's a given) but good learning experience.

Wishing you luck. When I got my laptop before, I had someone from the company where we bought the laptop set up. At least those basic ones.
