Computers, Computers

I recently bought a computer on Ebay. I figured it would be okay, as I wanted the same brand and screen size...just more memory. The new computer came on Monday.

The old computer (the one I'm using now) was doing just fine, I decided to give it to my middle daughter since hers broke down several months ago. As soon as I ordered my new one, the old one started making this horrible screaming sound. I was also having trouble connecting to the internet some of the time. I have a friend who used to work repairing computers, so I took it to him. It wouldn't make the noise for him. He told me if it was the fan the computer would shut down...they are made that way.

Several times on Monday the computer did just that! Loud noise; black screne.

Once the new computer arrived, I was all excited to get started with it, particularly since the old one sounded so loud. It is loaded with Windows 10. I couldn't get it connected to the Internet. I'm not able to work with it until I study the User Guide. Yuck!

So, today I posted my last photo for the contest I was doing. It's just too much work submitting the new photo every day and getting it approved. Don't need the hassle. I'll still be voting until the end of the month. One of my friends wrote that I was in the "highest voted". Well, we will see....but for now I'm working on the quietest computer with no hiccups in the connection. Go figure!

    Isn't if funny that the old computer was working just fine until you ordered the new one! It's almost as if the darned thing knew it's days were numbered! Then, predictably, the new one is hard to set up, and all kinds of things go wrong! You are reading a page out of my book! I am a little confused though - which computer are you using now?

    Ah, computers can be such a joy and such a headache. I am glad you have a new computer. I don't know much about them myself, but my new laptop is doing just fine, and that's all I really need.
