My computer is busted!

I’m actually writing this post on someone else’s computer and I only have 30 minutes to spare, lol. My beloved computer has gave up on me again. This is not the first time, I’m actually getting use to it. I’ve had this machine 8 years ago, yeah I know it’s Jurassic, but I upgraded the processor and the memory. Lately, it seems like it has a mind of its own, sometimes it works perfectly and sometimes it just doesn’t work. When it was playing up, I only needed to wiggle the IDE cables, swap the ribbons and the hard drives and it will work again. But it has been working seamlessly for the last couple of months until yesterday when it went kaput.

It was working Tuesday morning but when I got home from the office yesterday afternoon, it was not booting up and I can not fix it even after 4 hours of tinkering with the machine. It’s going into a repetitive start up and I later on discovered that it is not detecting the hard drives or the CD-ROM. Sometimes it will detect one of my two hard drives or the CD ROM but then if you will swap the IDE cables; it will not detect anything at all. I suspect that there’s something wrong with the motherboard. I am not an expert or I may have become rusty, but at least I know something about PC troubleshooting. Some of my friends would normally seek my assistance when it comes to their PC problems.

But now I’m clueless on how to fix my computer, hehehe. I guess I will have to buy a new PC or a laptop but that will hurt my savings account nicely. And it’s not a top priority as I’m also saving for my house construction next month.

Well, I’ll see if a local technician can fix this problem with minimal cost. I’m crossing my fingers now.

In the meantime, I will not be able to respond to your comments and reciprocate your visits or EC drops. Please accept my apologies. I'll get back to you when this has been sorted out.

That’s all for now. A wonderful day to all of you!

Hi Leo Mar!

I hear you! I have been on a pretty similar situation in the past and I very well know how frustrating it can be! Gppd for you at least you know how to fiddle around your PC. I am completely helpless as to my own PC issues.

I hope you could have your PC fixed very soon.

May you enjoy your weekend in grand style!


Yeah, MJP is my cousin. It's actually her name's initials, hehe. She confirmed she was able to attend a blogger forum when she was still connected with Sykes. She resigned there and transferred to another company. This is her blog's URL: www.mystique21.com
