Ain't Life Grand and All That Jazz!

Monday, December 24, 2012

OMG! Nobody ever told me, nor did I know enough to inquire...that laptops only have a life span of 5- 7 years and I guess mine is on its last leg. Sigh.

My computer is fine but my laptop monitor is black. Talk about frustrating beyond frustrating!!! So thankful for my brother, though. He hooked me up with an "S-video" cord which is allowing me to use my TV screen as my monitor for the time being. It's a little weird but I'm so glad that this tv has the plug for this in the back because me other tv doesn't.

So, I guess I'm back in business until I can save up for a new computer.

I hope everyone is doing well and I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas.

If you have laptops and you get the "Pink Screen of Death", be warned. It's time to make sure you have a backup plan. I didn't. Thankfully, I have everything important backed up and I also have Carbonite. I don't even want to think about all the pictures and documents I would've lost if it had been worse.

Once again, Merry Christmas, everybody. Have a safe and happy holiday.
I hope all of your wishes come true!

    AAARRRUUUGGGHHH!! I am sorry about your computer!! Good thing you have everything backed up - I have a cousin who didn't and ended up losing over 3 years of pictures because the hard drive fried! :-( Blah! Hope you are able to save up fast!! :-)

Hope you had a great Christmas - Happy New Year!!!

    It's great all your stuff is in the cloud -- you can access it from anywhere, anytime. Sorry about your computer letting you down. It's kind of a shock when things that are relatively expensive break down especially as we've come to rely on them.

Glad you have a temporary fix!

Merry, merry Christmas, Michele, and a great day!

    Sorry to hear about your computer. Never owned a laptop. Love my desktop and ipad.
Merry Christmas, dear SparkFriend.
