Ruminations on a thrice-broken computer

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 10:44 pm

Well, this is the third time in three years that I have to send my computer to Gateway for service. This time, the LCD screen literally came disconnected from the computer at the hinge, thus rendering me unable to see anything unless I’m plugged up to an external monitor (as I currently am). >_<

This time, I didn’t make the mistake of using the (still probably offshored) phone support to call in my service request… the web chat was much easier, what with my auditory processing disorder. Sure, the technician was still probably in India, but accents are a lot less noticeable in text. 😉

Really, this computer’s just been bad ‘moos’ for me… even if I have been milking it for all it’s worth these three years. At least I haven’t been given a lot of bull by support, though. I just hope I don’t have to send it in an-udder time, since it’ll be out of warranty after this month. OK, OK, I’ll stop with the bad bovine puns…
