Lent, bad weather, an abominable cold and then, well then my laptop, not even one year old, completely wrecked. A good reason to be furious and disappointed because it means that my posting activities will be vigorously reduced. It happened last Tuesday, late in the evening in the midst of my last post. When trying to boot up the next morning my machine asked me to insert the windows CD to continue. In fact we never got a CD when buying this laptop because most of the programs were already installed. Well, I could’ve taken the one from my son or my husband but how inserting it if the machine doesn’t have any CD drawer? I knew better but nevertheless turned my laptop several times to look for the corresponding drawer. I felt it, the guy on the other end of the hotline really didn’t believe me. It doesn’t matter any more because even installing the systems software via USB stick failed. So I had to get it packed and sent for repair service. Let’s see how long it will take to get it repaired and back. I’ll keep you up-to-date.
