The computer arrived with a note saying that they had replaced the motherboard and all should be well.
And it was … for a day. I happily went about reinstalling, updating and transferring all my files, until the Disk Check crash hit me and hit me hard. I was back on the Live HP Chat this morning at around 6:00 am, where a gentleman named Perry advised doing another System Restore (which I had done before sending the machine up).
Now, I haven’t restarted the system yet, but I did finally run a Disk Check all the way through without crashing and everything seems stable. Seems.
All I know is that if it bounces on my again, third time is the charm and I will be burying this thing in the back yard. It has been utterly torturous these last few weeks. I want it to be over with. I want to be able to trust the computer. I want to not waste any more of my days off or my nights reinstalling and configuring all my files.
But all seems well. Seems. We shall see.
Tomorrow I do some fun research for Spirit Cats. I’ve had books out from the library since the computer crash, and tomorrow I am getting to them, even if I do it with pen and paper.
