The last couple of weeks, I've been having some computer issues--periodic reboots or hosing up with various programs. Luckily, I haven't been writing and it hasn't caused too much of a problem.
Well, on Friday, my computer died.
Dead, dead. Dead, as in never to reboot again kinda dead.
I told hubs . . . like he needs any more stress in his life . . . and on Saturday he dismantled my computer. Other than containing serious amounts of dust, it 'looked' fine. He removed the hard drive and he tried to run it without the hard drive. Dead. He tried to run it without all the other added 'stuff'. Dead.
Diagnosis: Mother board.
Now, hubs found a cheap MB on eBay and ordered it. We'll see if this is really the problem when it arrives. If the computer is still dead, then I'll have a new computer sooner than Christmas. If this takes care of the problem, I might get a new computer at Christmas.
Either way it's a win-win situation for me!
