Up In Smoke...

They say your life flashes before your eyes when you are about to die, I wonder if that's what happened to my computer yesterday as it gasped it's last electronic breath as the screen went to glow with no graphics? Do computers have feelings? I think not, but I do and at the moment it is one of pure frustration. Yesterday we had the day off from work as bad weather moved in and a snow day was declared.

In October of 2009 my computer died and I had to get a new motherboard put in. I did not get the computer back until January of 2010. You guessed it, the motherboard went out again yesterday 1 year later and this time it's not under warranty. So guess what Susie has to do, get a new computer.

So I ask you, do you have any recommendations? I currently have a defunct HP and am looking at a Toshiba. I'm really frustrated as I don't need this aggravation while working on taxes or my inventory for my Mary Kay business. My whole life is on that computer. Thank goodness my IT Tech in Kansas City was able to remote in and back-up the whole computer to an external hard drive I have. Once I get my new computer I can up-load everything and be back in business, hopefully in a short amount of time.

Happy trails...


  1. So sorry to hear about your computer. We have an Acer and have been very happy with it. I don't like HPs because all the parts are proprietary and costs more. Good luck.

  2. Sorry to hear that you machine blew its brains out. That is really frustrating. I have heard good things about the Toshiba machines and am looking at a new Toshiba laptop too. I just need to find out if my WiFi router will play with Windows 7 before I do much.


We would love to hear from you, so please write a line or two when you visit.
