I got up this morning.. realizing that I forgot to make my to do list. I sat down at my computer and it was off. I thought maybe Windows did an update or something. I turned it on, it booted up.. and I received an error code…
Not this screen actually.. but one similar. I messed around with the computer for another 30 minutes or so.. then called The Man. He told me based on the error codes, I needed a new hard drive. (This will be the 3 in this Dell of mine). I called Wal-mart to see if they had a hard drive for a laptop. I spoke to a woman in electronics, told her “I needed a hard drive for a laptop.” She came back on the phone 5 minutes later to tell me she had some, and they ranged in price from 59.00 to 89.00.
#2 and I went in search of the perfect hard drive. We arrived at Wal-mart only to find that the two 65 + year old women working in the electronics department had the external hard drives confused with actual hard drives. Which means a lovely 50+ mile drive to Kansas City. This made #2 super happy. He loves to go to the nerd stores.
Once in Kansas City we purchased a hard drive for $65.00.. and headed home. Needless to say 6 hours later it’s not my hard drive, it the mother board or the processor. Currently I am waiting on this man:
To fix it.. if he does.. my mother was right. “It is really nice to have a man around that can fix things.”
