Last week, my desk top, a 10 year old HP, began locking up. Since I was on duty, I didn't have the time to deal with it other than attempt to go through on-line tutorials to figure out what was wrong.
Then one morning when I turned it on, the screen displayed the Mircosoft icon and the words: Preparing Automatic Repair.
And it remained in this state.
Once again, I attempted another on-line tutorial fix, but to no avail.
So I took it to a nearby computer repair shop. A couple hours later, my desktop was declared DOA.
Two capacitors on the motherboard were fried, and since the system was originally designed for Windows Vista, it wasn't worth replacing.
I'm also having some issues with my laptop: The media player won't play, and the power receptacle seems loose.
Meanwhile, I can't manage to get my iPad Pro to do what I've had my succession of laptops, and desktops to do.
So the long delays between blogposts will be longer I'm afraid, as I embark on a quest to replace my desktop.
