I was happy being back finally yesterday after 6 days without my computer. The motherboard was replaced (2nd time and 2 hard drives, too) and I was up and running again.
Less than 10 hours later, I was in the bathroom putting on my PJs and I heard the start up music. Hmmmm, my puter was on when I left. Running to the computer room, I found myself stuck on the desktop and then, a blue screen that told me to restart the computer. I did that and once again returned to the blue screen.
Today, I'm at my cousins who has a functioning computer, so I'm posting this to let everyone know that I'll be away for a while and I don't know how long. I left a message with the Dell Technical Support desk, but didn't have a call back last night. Hopefully, they'll call after I get home. I DO know that I'm sick of this.
My "new" computer has been a headache until it came out of the box. If I got paid for all the time I've been on hold or online with technical support, I'd be able to take a lavish vacation.
I was just getting myself smart again - I was soooo stupid after 6 days with no computer (no access to information) and realized how poor the TM really is. There is also way too much happening to be computerless yet again.
So, sadly, I'll be away for a while and anyone wanting to reach me will have to use the phone (no email) or send a telegram or smoke signal. I'll post again when I finally have a computer that functions (hopefully for good).
2:32 PM PT: I'm heading back home now. Thanks for visiting. I'll see you when .... I have a functioning computer again. Besides missing you all, I miss accessing real solid information rather than the talking points and BS delivered by the TM.
