The Weekend From Hell

How was everybody’s weekend?

On Thursday my computer puckered out leaving me PC less. I didn’t mind so much as I only type things up once I have a rough handwritten draft in front of me and it makes things easier that way.

On Saturday, my lovely husband thought it would have been a nice surprise to by a new tower to replace the old one. Now, it’s not very often he’s spontaneous so I was generally over the moon with it at first. Then, the problems started.

Going from Windows XP to Windows 7 wasn’t a big deal for me as we already own a Windows 7 computer for the living room. It turned out though I’d completely underestimated just how complicated it could be.

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I’m incredibly crap with technology and its workings.

First, I had trouble with arranging files and photo albums. Once that was sorted the Media Player wouldn’t play anything either. After many moons of downloading and installing things it’s now up and running. All systems go once again.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this one lasts a long, long time because I don’t want to have the same hassle as this one has cost me.
