Before my time on here; back then I had my first and last prebuilt PC (it broke just months after the warranty ran out). That brand wasn't a good buy, my friend who also bought one had his die not long after mine too. It was unbelievably cheap for a PC at the time which meant cheap parts. I won't mention the brand but it was quite unknown as a Google search now doesn't bring up anything.
I was on Windows 98SE and surfing the web via Blue Yonder from Telewest.
Being a teen around that time I was more interested in chat rooms, MSN Messenger and ICQ.
