The rest of the day was pretty much spent installing email and all my apps again. I lost my emails from 4/11 to today…… Continue Reading “Okay, re-installed the OS”
I don’t bash for or against either side in public. I do have my views and opinions but rarely is it worth argument.

But sometimes, it gets downright comical… … Continue Reading “From Bill Maher re: Trump’s whining”
I took leave today. I called Dell. They had me download an ISO of the original OS setup and said I’ll need to reinstall the factory install. I think I want to go with that to stay ‘legit’. I’ll have to get back with them tomorrow tho, because now…

I got a message from Digital Solutions. Tei said he found an OEM product ID which I can try. He’ll remote in and try it if needed. He also mentioned that it won’t be “official” but it’s worth a try.

I was on the phone for a little while this afternoon with Digital Solutions. I had told them about my Windows 7 product key not activating. They remoted in to try to activate it but went thru the same thing I did which didn’t work. They will try to find a phone number to call (for me to call?) Microsoft activation… Continue Reading “The Computer woes saga continues..”

I spent all of today, morning to night, on putting my laptop back to the way it was. And it’s coming with problems! I did do a backup with the Acronis software that Hip at the repair shop recommended. I just… Continue Reading “Just because I said I got the computer back…”
Lou and I picked Frannie up at her sister’s house in Wahiawa and we went to dinner. Monterey Bay Canners. It was good seeing her after all these (40!) years and catching up.

I took a sick day today. Did some needed errands…
I took my laptop in to this place called Digital Solutions, also H Power Computing, to have it recovered since I can’t figure it out. The guy’s going to install Win7 from scratch and replace my harddrive with a solid state 1Tb drive. I hope no … Continue Reading “Pay the bucks, gotta get it fixed”
