    Some

    Are these correct?
    1. I have problem with this computer. (What does this mean?)
    2. I have some problem with this computer.
    3. I have a problem with this computer.

    What do these mean?
    4. I have some problem with this computer. (What does this mean?)
    5. I have some problems with this computer. (What does this mean?)

    Re: Some

    1. I have problem with this computer. :( Needs "a" or "-s")
    2. I have some problem with this computer. :( Needs "-s")
    3. I have a problem with this computer. :D (singular, one problem)
    4. I have some problem with this computer. :( (Needs "-s")
    5. I have some problems with this computer. :D (plural, a few problems)

    Note that, 'problem' is a count noun, so either use "a" or add "-s". Also note, 'some' is plural, so the noun it modifies must be plural also, e.g., Count noun: some books; Non-count noun: some milk.

    All the best, :D
