It’s not quiet no mores. The guys at the local shop fixed it up quick-like ($20 extra up-front helps apparently). Not exactly sure what was wrong with it, but hey, I’m not complaining now. They mentioned replacing a coupla things. Damned expensive in the end, but if it messes up in the next 6 months, I get a discount on repairs. This comp’ll be cheaper than buying a new one, so I’ll stick with. Might even move up to XP if I can get a bit more cash.
So for all y’all thinking I’m dead and whatnot, not by a longshot. And I hope ya ain’t killed me yet, and if ya have, consider me a miracle.
Basically my computer just went and had an electric heart attack from what I gather. Just plain wouldn’t turn on (yes, everything was plugged in where it should’ve been). So I’m like “bloody hell” and was gonna buy a new comp but saw an ad in the papers for a computer store pretty close to me, so I’m like “eh, should try it.” Did, and I’m pretty pleased (and praying it lasts).
