The computer saga continues which leaves me writing this on my phone. I can hear you now, “wait you can write a post on your phone, so why haven’t you been posting?” well that is a long story
So here is the long and short of it. I first found the CPU fan had quit working. My computer needed a 3 pin connector, that’s what I ordered but not what I received. Once I installed The proper fan and excitedly announced I was back the computer blew the power supply
This was when my son made me a deal I couldn’t refuse, come visit him and he would install a new power supply.
I had a wonderful visit, the 3 of us girls visited Joann fabrics while my son finished showing a house, then we met up for lunch where my son and his wife presented me with an early Mothers day gift of A gift card to Half Price books the rest of the gift was to take me shopping to use my card.
After this us girls headed to the playground for a little quality time with my grand-daughter while my son repaired the computer.
As i loaded up to head home my son sent me a back up computer and a new phone he insisted I would be able to write a blog post on.
It took less than half an hour to lose another power supply, the back up computer is one he found at a yard sale and planned to update but never found the time to work on. The browser is dated and at least for now wont allow me to update
But hey I have a new Windows Phone that allows me to get online and read mail, so I guess I’m good for now.
I am seriously considering freecycling both computers, selling the table and seeing if I can survive with just the phone, if I add wireless on my internet connection it might work out well, and just think of all the electricity I will save
Please, tell me I’m not the only one who has these problems and wants to chuck the entire computer
btw, if you are wondering how my son can give me a new Windows Phone, it’s because his full-time job is as store manager for our carrier. One of his perks is receiving new phones which had to use for 3 months after which he can use any phone he likes. This is one of those he didn’t want.
