If Mama Ain't Happy Ain't Nobody Happy

No. I'm not talking about myself, but rather my motherboard. Remember that I'm having computer problems? I finally found time tonight to hook the tower up, and call the service number. They think that my motherboard is bad. Thankfully, I bought the extended warranty. The computer is almost 4 years old. We're within months of the expiration of the contract. They are going to fix the computer, but it may take 2 weeks to get the part, and have it installed. Oh bother.

I'm reading your blogs on Bloglines, but this tower is old, and takes forever to actually load each blog. Since I don't have all day to sit at the computer, I'm not actually visiting your sites and commenting. Oh, how I miss commenting. Soon. Not soon enough, but soon.

Hope "Mama" is feeling her old self again soon! :o)

What a pain! I hate computer problems. I hope they get it fixed soon!

thank goodness for the warranty!

Ashley (Karen's daughter) has had my computer for a while now, b/c her husband Matt was trying to fix it for me. No luck. I just found out that my motherboard is "fried" ~ he said it actually burned a hole in it. Crazy.

Hope to see you back soon!

So sorry about your computer problems! It's a hassle when it doesn't work right. Maybe the part will come in quicker than they expect!

I feel your pain! You know I just had horrible computer problems. Luckily, my sweet son solved them.

We look forward to hearing from you when you're up and REALLY running!

I feel your pain! My computer is right at 4 years old too....must be about the time they play out! After my computer crashed recently, I still don't have working speakers. We've ordered a new monitor and new speakers. The monitor seems to be tuckering out too. I'm hoping to set this computer up for the kids to use their school on (hopefully it lasts for that!) and get a good new one soon. I feel I've wasted HOURS over the last two weeks or so working on this computer!

Good luck getting yours fixed! It certainly makes me think about getting a four year warranty for our new computer!
