Computer Issues

I just love how my computer keeps failing on me time and time again. Last Monday, it came down with some sort of virus. I was without a computer for a few days until my mother came, took mine to get it fixed and then brought me the one from home. I went home this past weekend, and voila, my computer was fixed. I then basically spent the entire weekend trying to put my music library back onto the computer, which resulted in a folder being created in my Documents folder, a folder containing all of my music, which took up a great deal of space on my hard drive. This folder could not be deleted, and I therefore could not put my music library back on my computer, so that had me stumped for most of the weekend.

Now, today, my computer’s screen decided to turn completely black when it got to what should have been the desktop. I turned the computer off and turned it back on, and the result was a message telling me that I needed to insert my Windows Installation Disc to repair my computer, something that I cannot do due to the fact that since I got my computer used, I didn’t get an Installation Disc. The good news is that coincidentally, I recently asked my mother to talk to the store from where she purchased my computer, the same store where she brings it (somewhat frequently, I might add) to get it fixed, about getting an Installation Disc, and she mailed it to me today. The post office told her that I should be getting it either tomorrow (as in Wednesday) or Thursday, so hopefully, I will be able to fix it myself.

This is just getting rather annoying, because ever since I got that laptop, it has broken a good four or five times. A majority of those times, I had no option but to ask my mom to bring it to that store to be fixed, to which she agreed. It costs so much money, though. With the price of the computer (which, again, was used, mind you) and the price of the all of the repairs combined, she could have bought a brand new MacBook, which is what I wanted, and it wouldn’t have had to be fixed so many times. I hate computers, and it always seems like every time I have a problem with mine, it’s something that no one knows how to solve, so I have no choice but to get it professionally fixed. Anyway, hopefully, it will be fixed tomorrow with that disc. I’ll report on that, as well as how classes are going, tomorrow.
