Computers suck

My desktop has tried to commit suicide.  We’re currently waiting on an ordered power supply in hopes that thats the problem.  Otherwise we’re likely looking at getting a new computer and hoping that a professional can extract my files from the hard drive.  So posting will be even more slow than usual till thats figured out.  I CAN post from my ipad, but its a pain….

    Hope it is the power supply and you are up and running without any other complications!

    Hope the power supply is all you need. I’m getting to the point where the little foibles of my 6 year-old laptop are really starting to annoy me. Every shutdown is an invitation to disaster. I’d buy a new one in a minute if it didn’t come with the current version of Microsoft Hell, AKA Windows 8. I mean, shoot! I’m using Vista and don’t want to go to 8 until they get back to basics.
    Not everyone has or wants a freakin’ touch screen you tools! They look great on NCIS and other television shows but for home computing they sucketh!

    I read somewhere that they may be realizing their “oops” factor and will be releasing a “corrected 8” in time for Christmas. I hope that report was correct.

    (Yeah. I know that some machines are still being sold with Windows 7 but the machines I’m loking at do not have that option for some reason.)

    Any way…Extracting the data from your hard drive–if it comes to that–shouldn’t be too big a problem–unless that’s where the nasty is being done.

      We’ve got Win 7 discs so in theory we Could down grade a new compiter. I hope so, I don’t care for 8 at all!

      We actually suspect harddrive failure, but the power supply is a potentially cheap fix, so starting there….otherwise the computer’spretty decent. I’d rather not get rid of it.
