Can you believe it?
Not one, but BOTH my computers passed away within three days of each other.
First, my 6-year old desktop died. And when I say died, it suddenly (without any warning of ever being even remotely sick) STOPPED BREATHING in the middle of the day.
I was utterly devastated.
Yet, what could I do except whip out my trusty 8-year old laptop and use it until I could do some research and then buy a new desktop. But after only three days of using it, it too died. WTF?!? But at least I got a warning sign because just before it passed away it started making a weird grinding sound, so I could tell that something was dreadfully wrong. As soon as I heard the strange noise, I jumped up from my desk chair and pleaded with it, "NO...NO...PLEASE DON'T DIE TOO, PLEASE DON'T DIE TOO...NOOOO!!!"
I quickly grabbed the computer and took it to a nearby Computer Hospital Emergency Room. The geek squad there took my laptop and immediately performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, using two defibrillation paddles in an attempt to my save its life...

But alas, after three attempts...there was nothing they could do. It was too late.
It was d.e.a.d.
*insert sad music*
How tragic it was to have lost two computers within the same week.
However, there is a bright spot to this story...
You see, I did purchase a new desktop computer (and quite quickly I might add) that was not only everything I wanted, but I also got it ON SALE!
*doing the happy dance*
I planned on getting an all-in-one desktop computer because I wanted to save space on my desk by not having a separate hard drive tower. I've always admired the Apple iMac all-in-one computers, but didn't want to pay the price, so I found the next best quality computer, a Hewlett Packard. I've always owned HP's and have enjoyed them.
And can I just tell you, I FREAKING LOVE THIS NEW COMPUTER!
It's so sleek and compact. And it totally matches my white HP printer/scanner that I purchased last December. Now, everything on my computer desk is white and I love it because it's so clean-looking.
Also, this new desktop computer has a built-in web cam, which my other desktop did not. It also came with a beautiful 22 inch HD monitor that is crystal clear. Oh, and the audio system is fab-u-lous!
Yet I will admit, it took some time to get used to Windows 10 because it is SOOOOO different than Windows 7. But after two weeks of working with it, I'm finding that I really, really like it.
One thing though, I absolutely detest the browser that Windows 10 comes with (Microsoft Edge) because it's way too confusing and extremely slow ; therefore I quickly replaced it with Google Chrome (my favorite web browser).
Anyway, here's my new computer all set up on my desk....
Isn't it faaaaaaaaaabulous?
Have a great rest of your week, y'all!
