After 5 'blue screens of death' today I realize I need to take action before disaster strikes and my laptop will die on me.
It's been going on for months. My dinosaur laptop is dying. Some days it gives me one blue screen of death after another, other days it works like a charm.
The problem is the internal battery. It's drained and should be replaced.
For some reason, the error is triggered by using the keyboard; as long as I only use my mouse, everything is fine, but when I type three words, the system runs into a problem and needs to be restarted.
These last couple of days have been very frustrating, to say the least.
About three or four weeks ago, I purchased a brand new laptop. I usually can't wait to try out new toys, but in this case that's different. Believe it or not, the new toy is still unopened, tucked away in a corner of the room.
The reason for that is simple: it's going to take me days to install and configure all software I have on my old laptop. I'm really not looking forward to that.
I Need To Take Action
... before it's too late.
It's just a matter of time before the old one dies forever, which would be a disaster.
I realize that I need to get the new one going before that happens, so I can be sure I still have access to any data I might have forgotten to back up.
It's a horrible task, but it needs to be done. :0/
Wish me luck...
