FRUSTRATED!

Posted in Nugget tagged , at 9:22 pm by Momma

Woe is me! I had a great post ready for today with pictures of our park outing. But instead I am highly annoyed an irritated with computer problems. I turned my regular PC off this morning just like I always do, and when I went to turn it back on later this evening: NOTHING!!! I called DELL for tech support ($39 tech support). Sub standard tech support might I add. She basically had me unplug and then re-plug in every single wire, modem, video card, memory chip and battery inside the computer. An hour and a half later she told me she couldn’t help me and that I more than likely need a new mother board. She gave me a phone number, product code and then asked, “is there anything else I can help you with tonight!” Was she trying to be snide, or just condescending? I should have said, “Since you did such a brilliant job of helping me with my first problem maybe you can help me tackle global warming?” EFF!

So I called my go to tech guy, and he’s going to come over this week and take a looksie, and hopefully at least get my 3000 Aidan-Daidan photos off the hard drive! So, for know I will sit and wait 40 bucks poorer and lots more irritated!

UPDATE: It is 10:45 pm and as I came upstairs to get ready for bed I looked at the computer screen and it was telling me to press F1 to reboot! WTF? How it turned itself on and booted up…I have no idea! Immaculate connection?Β  But before it decides to turn itself back off, I am burning all 3000 of my pictures/movies onto DVD’s. I’m pretty sure the machine is cookoo! Moral of the story? Back up anything you care about!!!

    I totally LOLed at “immaculate connection”! πŸ˜†

    The rest sucks much ass tho – computer problems have got to be the worst of the worst. My mom’s did the same thing once but came back and has been fine ever since.

    These machines have a mind of their own ya know? 😑

    Good reminder on backing up pictures. I think I just have Deeder’s first three days of life saved off my hard drive. Well lets all just hope that your computer lives on!
