Ugh. My computer has been getting slower and slower over the past few weeks. I think I figured out why. I am told by the CrystalDiskInfo program that the hard drive has a lot of uncorrectable sectors. She is dying.
I ordered a new laptop last week, it’ll be here in a week. So I decided to not write anything important to my desktop computer, wait for the laptop and make it my primary computer. I’m a bit freaked out at this. Change can be hard. Hell, I still have a land line phone.
Last week my beloved AG Neovo monitor died. I’ve had it for about 10 years. I had it repaired for $150 a couple years ago but it would be silly to spend another $150 on fixing an old 19″ monitor when I can buy a new on for about the same price. Now this week my desktop computer is dying. It’s I don’t like it one bit.
I considered doing the following: get a small (128GB) SSD drive, a large (1TB) physical drive, reinstall XP, go from there. But why do it, really? I’m not a computer professional any more. My phone almost is as powerful as my desktop computer. I tell ya why I’d do it. Because I’m comfortable with it. It works. But the times, they change.
