Experiencing technical difficulties….

 

L1030566

It started when my computer could not find a battery – battery had  died. Very expensive to replace and delivery would be 8 weeks…Then I would be typing merrily away and only a third of the letters showed up making for some very unusual words and punctuation. Then the touch pad did not like to be touched and it kept jumping out of reach and the pages would scroll and scroll and scroll…

So, after 5 years of excellent performance, it all fell apart. Yesterday I bit the bullet and bought a new computer. I am downloading and updating and installing and moving files. Very, very time consuming.

I hope to finish all of this today and tomorrow and I will be catching up on my visiting very soon.

It is hard to say goodbye to the old computer, but I bet you will have even more speed now. Have fun!

Good luck with the new computer! I am saving up. Mine is 3 and Dell says it is not worth fixing!
What did you end up getting?

You made it longer than I did. I go through most any computer within about 2-3 years!

You poor dear! I am sure I would not have a a clue how to transfer anything so all will be lost when this one dies! Good luck!

I feel your pain! Both my husband and I have had computer crashes this year. It gets to be expensive and time consuming!
