My precious computer has a blown motherboard. I left the house on Friday to enjoy the beautiful, warm day with my mother-in-law and I came home to enjoy some time reading blogs on the deck outside. It was not to be. Sometime while I was gone, the motherboard in my computer decided to stop functioning. Sad....
After a conversation with Dell Support via online chat (the best way to communicate with them!), my husband found out that our warranty expired in December. That's not surprising. Isn't that how it usually works?
The good news...if you can call it good news...is that this appears to be an issue that is under recall. Yay! So we won't be out any money on the repair! That's certainly good news to me.
Dell originally wanted us to send the computer to them and have them replace the motherboard. Terrible option! All my "stuff" is on there...my photos...my documents...my....well, you get the picture, right? To send them my computer just seems way too personal. It would be like sending them an unrestricted part of myself. That's just not a comfortable thought to me.
My sweet husband is perfectly capable of repairing this computer if he has the parts so they are sending a new motherboard to us for him to replace. So until that time, I am attempting to function with this incredibly small Dell mini with it's incredibly small keyboard and none of my photos or my photo software. Since it's a holiday today, I'm not sure if Fed Ex will be delivering. I'm hoping, just this once, that they don't have the day off. I'm thankful we have this little computer; but for my old eyes and chubby fingers, it's just not comfortable to use like my laptop. Until I get it fixed, my time on here posting and reading and commenting on your blogs will be limited.
I hope you all had a great weekend and that your upcoming week is even better. Spring is on its way. It may be snowing here in NH at the present time; but there's just something different in the air. I can feel it.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I look forward to seeing you again soon.
