Poor poor compy.

October 3, 2007

For the last year and a half the ol’ computer has been slowly falling apart.  It began when one of the USB ports on the front of the case stopped working.  Then, one by one, all the ports started failing.  Now I’m down to 2 functioning ports.

The floppy drive (yes I have a floppy drive, shut up.) works only halfway – recording or reading only half the data that I require.

And now whenever the computer is even nudged slightly by my overactive foot the power fan slows to about half speed.  It then gradually works its way up to full speed until I nudge it again.

I could fix these problems, given enough time and patience.

I think that instead I’ll just try to save up and buy a happy new computer.  If I actually do that it will be the first time in my life that I’ve simply purchased a computer rather than build one.  It’s a strange thing to consider.

That’s all.

    I’m not so surprised that you have a floppy drive in your computer (I have several computers that still have floppy drives), but rather that you had an occasion to use it so that you could find out it wasn’t working :)

    My computer died recently too. It turns on but nothing ever come on the screen. Normally I have enough spare parts lying around that I would be able to troubleshoot it. After having just moved though, I threw out years and years of accumulated garbage parts. Now I have no means of testing my computer. So I’ve actually been using my much older computer that for some reason still works. Flash movies are really slow.. Poor poor compy.

    I still think I’ll Newegg me a new one rather than Dell it.
