Well, I am writing this from my brand new laptop.
Here is my story. My other laptop became verrrrryyyyyyy ssslllllooooooowwww.
Then, it kept coming up "Server not found". I still had full internet, so I did everything
my limited technical brain could think of. Nothing worked.
The final blow was I could not download any games.
Ok---fixing this post----again!!!!
To make sense of this post, I will explain what I did to lead up to Aaron.
I trotted over to Radio Shack to check out laptops. While there, I told the saleswoman
about my laptop's seemingly slow death.
She recommended I come back to see Aaron, who thrives on all things technical and fixing them.
So, like a good (and desperate) girl, I go back the next day and tell him my tale of woe.
He could not get connection in the store, but was able to determine my laptop needed some
maintenence (no surprise there as I am the only one who ever maintained it.
I asked him about this one, he answered all my questions and said this was good
especially for the price (it was on sale). He even knew the game site Steam.
He gets his games from there.
So, I bought it.
I came home, got it connected to the net, dl'd Firefox (I hate IE), then proceeded
to have problems.
Yup "Server not found"
I called Aaaron, who said he suspected it was my internet server. Even though
it showed I had full service, something was wrong.
I called Time Warner and the tech guy was very helpful. Turns out the wireless router
So for now I have it plugged into the land line-which thankfully is a very long cord!
My daughter just came over (she moved out a month ago and this was her router)
and said she wasen't surprised, this router is about 5 years old.
So, my first laptop is getting a maintenance done (I called and told him he was right,
he said good and he would clean my old one up)
and I am adjusting to this one.
My credit card is getting used.
So, hopefully I will get used to this, I have to say I am liking it so far.
Its my new toy.
