Goodbye Right Arm

24 Aug

Something absolutely horrible has happened. I went to my grandmother’s house to choose the things I wanted before the yard sale occurs next weekend, and when I came home, my laptop was….was…

TOAST!

Okay, so the blue screen of death wasn’t on it, but it wouldn’t connect to the internet! This is horrible!! I NEED my computer and I NEED internet access! That’s my JOB!

I called HP and apparently it’s a problem with a lot of the computers made at that point in time. The motherboard and the wireless adaptor fit together like a cat and a dog, and the adaptor winds up being destroyed after a time.

The tech guy was great, and said that I could absolutely get a wireless adaptor card…but that the motherboard was faulty and that if I chose to go with a card, the day could occur when my computer refused to turn on at all.

*sigh*

So I’m strapped to the desktop again while the laptop takes a trip to get fixed. Apparently they’re putting a new hard drive and wireless adaptor in it, which means it’ll be just like getting a new computer without a new casing.

I still miss my laptop and cried for it this afternoon! COME BACK LAPPY!!
