Laptop Woes – Part Deux
A little over a month ago my laptop died. I took it to a shop in Contra Costa County named, “Paramount Technologies” who were able to fix up my laptop in record time. 1 Apparently, the problem was the video chip which had loosened from the motherboard over time (probably through overuse).
Friday evening my laptop died all over again. At least it was peaceful. I put my laptop to sleep and it didn’t wake up again.
Its still under a repair warranty from Paramount Technologies, so I’ll take it back to them. It has the same symptoms, so I hope its the same problem. Even if it weren’t under warranty, my formula for determining whether I should invest in repairing or buying a new computer still dictates that I should probably repair.
No matter. Be of good cheer: these troubles will have absolutely no effect on this website. :)
