What's a girl to do?

I have had a terrible time with my computer yesterday and today. I had to call Hewlett Packard since I had a warranty with them, and they talked to me this morning for two hours, trying to resolve my problems. As it ended up, I had to do a System Recovery, and lost everything I had in my computer. I was able to find my blog, thank heavens.If not, someone would be calling the men with the baggie britches to come and get me.I have been sick to my stomach ever since I began working with this, trying to fix it my self. That doesn't work in my case, since I know nothing about the internal workings of a computer. I had to trust the company to be honest in what they were telling me the problem was.That is the worse part. Not many people are honest anymore,much less a foreign fellow from India,who could barely speak English,sometimes not so good, whom I've never seen,and will never see or hear from again.What's to say he was telling me the truth. I can only hope. I am at his mercy and he knows it. As luck would have it, my warranty had run out 90 days prior. And  what's worse, the virus controls I had on my computer were supposedly competing against each other.It does not make it any better to have more than one.It makes it worse.Never the less, he talked me into taking another virus protection, since I had a whole new system in my computer,and I did.Not only did I take the security protection for viruses, I got a plan where I can call anytime of the day or night, and get help on my computer for technical problems.Both plans together were $100. plus. but what is one to do if they know nothing about keeping things running properly. I guess for the pleasure I get from my computer, that is not a lot of money. That's only 3 cartons of cigarettes for Pop(just in case he questions me about it).
I was having trouble with Farmchick's site for one, so I have had to remove it from my followings until I can figure out how to fix the problem. Sorry Farmchick, I'll get it fixed as soon as possible, I hope.Hopefully, I won't run into anymore unforseen problems while I am trying to get things back on track.Later!


  1. Oh c..p I so dislike computer problems.
    I've had to do a system recovery a time or two myself.
    Glad everything is back on track.

  2. My computer started making a funny sound the other day and I freaked out. Started backing up all my pictures and such, but if I lost all my internet bookmarks, I would be lost.

  3. So sorry you have having problems Sue. Hope it clears up. :)
