Singin' the laptop blu-u-u-ues ...

August 22 /09

Hi friends.

Just a quick post to let you know that we've been having major computer problems and haven't been able to stay up-to-date with my blog or visit your blogs.

Now that those issues are pretty much resolved, we just discovered that we're unable to download any pictures or videos from our camera. Apparently there's now something wrong with the USB ports. So it's back to Tech Support and hopefully, we'll have this fixed soon too.

Mama has spent hours and hours on the phone with Dell Tech Support, our Internet Service Provider and Linksys. She also had two visits from a Dell technician. But as soon as one thing is fixed, something else goes wrong. She's so fed-up and is just about ready to throw the computer in the garbage. Does anyone else have problems like this? One friend told us that laptops can be sketchy this way and desktops are much less fragile. Opinions?

I'll drop in on your blogs and catch up with all of you very soon. I love and miss you!

Hello there!

Sorry to hear about your computer issues. My husband builds computers and says that the trouble with a USB port issue is that it could be the operating system or a hardware issue.

Tech support can be so difficult sometimes too.

We have both laptops and desktops and the laptops are just as reliable as the desktops.

Please let me know if we can be of any help!

Not long ago I was not able to post pictures from flickr to my blog. I downloaded firefox and it worked. The computer is still not the same (I think there just isn't enough memory and stuff on the C drive). I'll probably have to get a new one within the next year or so. Oh my, I hate the thought of breaking that news to my husband. I'd best start saving my dollars now!

What a pain! Too many things to go wrong. Hope you can get it all worked out. Momma just says F-it every few years and buys a whole new pooter.

Slobbers,
Mango

I understand. Our computer is really slow lately and some things are hard to open. I told my mom not to download that Safari update but no one listens to me.
