Computer Woes

December 2nd, 2019 at 04:39 pm

And just like that my computer is toast. :/ The computer I scrimped and saved for and then paid off early.

I knew this day was coming. It has been making some noises for a month or two now. (Of course about a month after my extended warranty wore off...) The computer is 4.5 years old and I use it for hours daily and have lots of programs and games.

Fortunately I can still get in it in safe mode so I was able to save my bookmarks, and documents. I had almost everything backed up anyway since this computer has died multiple times in the last year or two (under warranty) and I had to recover things over and over. I'm kind of used to it to be honest.

Thankfully my husband has a computer so I think I am going to download the bare minimum to his computer so I can work somewhat and wait a bit to purchase. Today is Cyber Monday but the computer I want is only $450 off which isn't much. I think I got my last one $1,000 off plus a free tv.

I can get 12 months free financing but I am leery to take on anymore payments. So I'm going to wait for now if possible. A major pain, but doable I think. Since I am getting close to my due date I have cut back my hours and projects a lot anyway. I think I can finish up my commitments on my husband's computer. But eventually, probably sooner rather than later I am going to have to buy a new one and it is looking like around $2,500. Yikes!

A necessary expense for someone who makes a living on computers, but definitely not what I wanted to spend my money on right now.

    Sorry about your computer dying. It's never fun, even when you have stuff backed up.
