I got an email from H Power Computing asking if I wanted to replace my motherboard or not on the M2800. Apparently they didn’t read my last message to them telling them go ahead as a go ahead. So since I had the chance, I rolled that decision back and told them never mind, just restore it to the Windows 7 OS running… Continue Reading “Done with old laptop’s upgrade effort”
H Power Computing also messaged me about my M2800 laptop having Win10 installed. It’s not installing. They believe the motherboard is bad. So they quoted ordering a replacement (used from overseas) at $378.00. WTF do I do, abandon the effort with money already sunk in for the Windows 10 upgrade and the… Continue Reading “Fixing this old laptop might get expensive!!”
I saw someone post this somewhere… snagged it because it just reached out to my heart and fuckin’ squeezed it until it hurt.
It was kind of an impromptu dinner plan. Lou went with me into town to drop off my older Dell laptop to the repair shop to get an OS upgrade done. As we left the shop, we pondered where to grab something to eat and then decided we might as well do dinner, dine-in kind.

It helps that it’s not the main computer, of course! But… I’ve given up trying on my own.… Continue Reading “Sought professional help (for laptop)!”

We all got a kick out of this from my shared FB post.
We are in unprecedented times in this COVID-19 environment. This year, 2020, will forever be the desperate year (hopefully 2021 doesn’t get sucked into this reputation!). Turning everywhere, how virtually every facet of life has changed or remains changing, nobody knows what the new norm will be.… Continue Reading “Humor reflecting sign of the COVID times”
Should this be in Private Storage or no? Well, it was on social media and posted in our WhatsApp chats (SVS75 Alum and the SVS boys’ only one). So, harmless enough. Anyway.

So it’s day 4 messing with this damned old laptop (3 years old so it’s not really old) trying to upgrade it to Windows 10. It keeps hanging at about 85%. I get the error:
I run this setupdiag.exe that I downloaded to see why it is stopping, and it can’t find any failure signatures.… Continue Reading “Is this a lesson in futility?”
