Hooking Up My Computer
 
Owen: Hi Sam. Can you help me out?
 
Sam: Sure. What is it?
 
Owen: So, I've bought a new PC and I'm having some problems getting it ready.

Sam: Oh, yeah, I see. And I'm that geek friend.

Owen: Yeah... You are so good at PCs and all that computer stuff. I've plugged in all the cables from the monitor, mouse and keyboard, and... It still won't start.
 
Sam: What about the software? Have you installed it?
 
Owen: No... Do I have to?
 
Sam: Well, not always, but in most cases it's better to install drivers for your computer equipment — the mouse, the keyboard…

Owen: Won't the computer start without the drivers? 
 
Sam: It will, don't worry. Boot it up and then we can update the software.
 
Owen: Okay...  Hmm, what's that? 
 
Sam: Oh, this is a memory card reader. You can insert SD and micro SD cards from your camera and mp3 player and mobile phone into it.

Owen: That's pretty handy.

Sam: It's a nice PC. How big is the hard drive?

Owen: Probably about 500 GB... I honestly don't remember...
 
Sam: Good... Okay, the system's booted up, everything's okay. Let's install the drivers.
 
Owen: Wait a sec, can I get online now?
 
Sam: Do you have a Wi Fi router or a Ethernet cable?

Owen: Yes, I do. that's the white cable over there.
 
Sam: Yep. Is it plugged in?
 
Owen: What do you mean?
 
Sam: The cable needs to be plugged into you computer. Okay, here we go... Yeah, now it's ready. 
 
Owen: Let's get online!
 
Sam: Just a sec... Before that we need to launch the browser.
 
Owen: What's that?
 
Sam: It's the program that you use to browse the web, that's why it's called 'browser'.
