New Computer after the Crash

Howdee all,

Finally went to Best Buy to buy a new computer..

The Geek Squad took a look at my old computer…and said the Hard Drive was gone…must have been that clicking sound that gave it away……they said they could run a utility to see if they could recover any documents…I decided to wait on that. Maybe brother can help me with that at a later date.

Anyway……

I wanted the Dell with a 17 inch screen..but once in Best Buy…I was convinced I should buy an HP computer that had a few faster components.

So I did..as they were registering the Antivirus software Windows froze.

So they gave me a new HP computer, which I took outside and started to play with it.

  Windows froze on me as well.

Brought the computer back and opted for the Dell computer with the 17 inch screen.dell laptop

So far a few minor glitches ..everything seems to be working fine.

If not..this one goes back too!

Wish me luck…..I will spend the next few days transferring documents etc from my hard drive. Setting up programs, downloading software etc etc..

Hope to be up and running at full capacity by next week..

After all..it still is

MUSHROOM SEASON

and I might just have to pick a few…

Hi Dawn! It's been to long since I stopped by.

Glad you got a Dell. My last computer was an HP and I swore I would never get one again. The laptop I have now is a Lenovo and I love it!!! It's made by IBM and has good feedback from it's users. I'm surprised you didn't switch over to a MAC, it seems so many people are these days. My friend just did and she loves it!

Hope you are able to retrieve things off the old hard drive Dawn. That is so very frustrating. I do hope this Dell will be just the ticket. :c)

Good luck with the new compy!

and yea, that clicking sound is never good, I recall all too well the nasty feeling in the pit of your stomach when you hear it and you know something just isn't the way it's supposed to be....

Glad you got a new computer! My current laptop is an HP and needed to have its screen replaced six months after I bought it. But I also know people who had awful trouble with Dells. It seems like both companies make a certain number of lemons, and some models might have better records than others.

Good Luck Dawn with your new computer... I am surprised about the HP because we have one and it works great... BUT Dell is also a wonderful brand... I just read some of your older post I had missed and I am so jealous over your mushroom feast... It looked fabulous... Have a great day my friend!

Happy Halloween

Missed you!

Glad you are back up and running. Love my Windows 7, so far.
Now you have no excuse for not writing your great blogs.
