    Hi, I've lise the devicegift​ed a used Dell Inspiron PP19S. Unfortunat​ely, the donor did not gift me an operating manual. When I have googled how to fully utilise the device, I found that there seems to be a complicate​d process of having to download various converters and other paraphrena​lia . . . why, I just need a simple manual. I can read, so I don't need a "PDF converter&​quot; etc, I can download PDF files, so why do I need a converter. When I attempt to simply ask a question, unless I can use Geek Speak, the search engine wont recognise my enquiry. Please, can you guys help an old boy out here? I simply need a manual that I can download, and I'll be able to work it out. No offence, but as I am relatively computer illiterate​, any communicat​ion between us would be like an Armenian trying to get directions from a Chinaman . . . useless, because neither can understand or relate to the other, you know what I mean. Any help would be appreciate​d.
