Title: Computer problems
Posted: July 31, 2007 (12:26 AM)
Yeesh, I figured doing an upgrade installation to my computer might end badly, but not this bad.

Right in the middle of installing, the computer just got stuck in an endless cycle of restarting after coming back on for a few seconds. After having to do a recovery, things seemed to be going well. However, in less than 24 hours, my computer goes through two new problems. The first being that it doesn't want to turn off. It just restarts after attempting to shut it off and telling me it recovered from a serious error. Then the second problem occurs: I can't get online. I even went through the trouble of uninstalling and reinstalling my browser, it didn't work.

So, now I'm stuck with a messed up computer that I'm gonna take to get repaired. Hopefully, they can see what the problem is. Man, and I just beefed up the RAM a few days ago, too.

I'm using someone else's comp, if you're wondering.

It might be faulty RAM. Check the microsoft help and support page, if I'm correct there's a program you can run that checks for memory errors. My friend had this problem a while back, wish I still had the link to the page.

Well, got my comp back, and they said the problem with not getting online was that the modem died. Most likely during a thunderstorm that occured while I was at work or sleeping. They replaced it, and the whole repair cost $60. So far, the computer has been acting normally again. Lost everything I saved, though. But I managed to save the more important stuff to disc before the repair, so it's not all a lose.

Now all that's left is dling some stuff again...

I feel ya. I'm going through computer troubles as well. This message is not typed on my computer either.

How long until you get the comp back to tip-top shape?

It's actually functioning quite normally now. Probably even a little better since a couple of unneeded junk was erased. I saved the more important stuff before the repair, so I got most of those things up as well.
