Instead of spending the weekend accomplishing anything productive, I worked endlessly on trying to fix my computer. First priority oxygen, second priority internet. Apparently it has contracted a horrible case of gonorrhea or something. I know laptops have a short life span, but after I completely reinstalled its operating system this summer, you think it could have given me another measly year.
I’ve tried every disk clean-up option possible, removed programs, and even tried numerous system restore options, all to no avail.
Not only is my computer moving slower than a stoned turtle, but I have to reboot it about once an hour. This is putting a crimp in my style. On top of that, my computer won’t open Microsoft Money any longer, which is not a good thing. I have no access to any of my bank information and despite backing up the program, uninstalling it and reinstalling it, it still won’t open.
My brain is fried and I’ve made no progress.
I’m off to research a new laptop. I think it is the only reasonable solution, don’t you? Any suggestions?
This is perhaps the strangest blog post I’ve ever written. See, I told you, the computer ate my brain cells. Thankfully I didn’t take up a career in IT.
