Computing & Technology
> A Nightmare
A few days ago, my mouse and keyboard stopped working. I changed batteries in both, and no luck. Took the computer to my computer guru, Ce, and she said the ports I was using weren’t working anymore. She switched and everything seemed fine. I got the computer home but couldn’t sign into my account.
The only way I could use the computer was in a separate account without access to any of my files. I also had to have the programs I use most often, added to a blank Bookmarks list.
But I needed to be able to access my stuff, so I dragged the tower back to Ce. She worked on it off and on (she gets many interruptions all day). I was there 5 hours, amusing myself as best I could. The bottom line is that my computer is totally corrupted and the only way to fix it is to back it up, wipe it clean and start over. Or she could build me a new computer (her specialty) for $750.
Ed was not enthused about that, so I will, tomorrow, tell her to go ahead and wipe the drive and start over.
But it has been an awful day of waiting and it was tiring too. And I couldn't get anything else done.
