Laptop meltdown

My laptop has thrown its biggest hissy fit ever. It won't connect to the Internet at all, keeps giving me blue screens and insisting there's some kind of resource conflict. The end result is that it won't connect either via the wireless card or the ethernet card. I've even tried hooking the cable modem up to it via a USB cable. Still no joy. I suspect, rather than a resource conflict, that something may have shorted out on the motherboard, thanks to the broken connector pin. So it's bye bye laptop. I'm now back to using my clunky, ancient, 8 year old desktop PC, which runs about as fast as a geriatric, one-legged tortoise.

I'm not spending any money on the laptop. I'll make do with the old clunker for a few weeks, until I can afford a new desktop PC. In the meantime, I'm going to retrieve everything I can off the laptop. I won't be posting much here for a while, as the old clunker is a nightmare to use. It takes at least 15 minutes to boot up. Oh well, c'est la vie!

*sniff* *sniff* I'll MISS you! I wish I could help you get a newer computer. So, you wouldn't be absent from the blogosphere.
