When your Computer Gives Up on You

brokenpc


Have you experienced when you are in a hurry to do something on your computer when all of a sudden it slows down, restarts on its own, can't save your work or just totally messed up? Arghhh.. it can be frustrating! I experienced that when I was still using assembled Pentium 4 pc few years back. Funny thing is, I was so annoyed and frustrated because I can't open multiple applications at the same time because its memory is just way too slow. Viruses often attack my computer too because I don't have a good antivirus at that time too.


Thankfully, after saving I was able to buy myself an HP desktop and a Dell laptop that I used alternately. It's been many years now since I bought then and it has never given me any major headache. I wish to have an iMac but major savings is needed hehe. I can also open multiple programs/applications and even numerous tabs on my internet tabs without hassle.


With the new computers that I have, I learned how to be careful when downloading stuff so that no visrus or malware can enter my computer. I also learned  how to clean hard drive by deleting unwanted programs and files that can also slow down my computer. I also learned how to reformat computers just by watching a tutorial in Youtube and with that skill that I learned I don;t need to call our technician to do the reformatting of our net cafe computers.



I just wished that all of my computers will serve me more years because I've been taking care of them with lotsa love.

  3. Yes I have experienced the same problem before and it sure is so frustrating to have a computer that won't work when you need it the most. I agree that we need to be very careful with viruses to keep our gadgets fully operational all the time...I love my computer because my friends live in it :-) thank you for this post...you reminded me to really take care of my things with lotsa love...I love how you said that :D blessed day....

  5. I encountered problems like that back when I was still working. But that doesn't gave me a headache because my company owned that PC. But now that "m working on my own, I'm really cautious about downloads and applications. It's better to be careful, because I know how hard it is to save extra money just to purchase a computer!

  11. Oh yeah! I experienced that too and it's really annoying. I hate it! Right now, I have a desktop which I use for browsing only.

    I have 2-laptop which I used for blogging and banking. This desktop is really fast because I don't save any docs in it.

    Anyway, we learn to take care our gadget more when we sweat for it right?
