Once more the CPU God has looked down upon me unfavorably. For the third time in just over a year, the motherboard has died on my “new” solid-state laptop. The computer is a dream–when it works correctly.
The odds of having three bad boards in one computer, under 14 months, must be astronomical. The good news is I know what the culprit is, and no, it is not me. When the piece for the mouse was plugged in darkness fell upon the screen and all became silent. It must be the USB causing a spark or static and that is what has been killing the motherboards. The first time an external drive was attached and it killed that also. This time, and last, it only took the computer itself.
The good news, after a heated discussion, Levono once again (though not as willing as last time), agreed to replace the motherboard and check out the USB, though I am positive that will need replaced also. If not, I foresee a fourth motherboard in my future. The techs know about the problem and they will be reminded, so it will be on them if another board dies.
It will be about two weeks before the laptop is back. Plus, I am finally allowed to bear weight on the bad leg, so now it is time for rehab. I will try to get a review or two up — middle grade novels as I cannot post images using the iPad (that I know of). If anyone knows how to do that, please let me know. Just getting this written was a difficult. The keyboard is so tiny..
Thank you for once again understanding the plight of the CPU. Don’t you just love technology?
