It happens to the best of us

Postby Smith Wesen on Fri Jun 21, 2002 3:05 pm

(this goes out to everyone whos ever had an unexplainable computer problem and are convinced the computer companies are screwing us over)

I would like to say that i feel your pain aaron

My computer once fried itself from the inside out.The surge protecter was still intact put every thing else was fried, know why. CAUSE OF A FRIGGIN SURGE. now logically the surge protector was still intact now i don't know if im being stupid but even if it can't handle it the thing should be fried regardless. The worst thing about this is the computer company blamed it on a faulty surge protecter and visa versa


(anyway i would like anyone that has had a similarly frustrating thing happen to them please add to the list im hoping im not the only one and this just came off as whining)

once apon of a time my PC shut down, for no apparent reason, then if my hard drive was plugged in then my PC wouldnt get past BIOS screen, It seemed like a power surge, maybe it was but my Harddrive was the only thing effected. still couldnt figure out what is wrong with that hard drive, and prob. never will either.

It's a plague.

Mine's had more trouble in the last few months than I've ever had with an older computer.

If the corporate trend of making things just flimsy enough
to break after your warranty expires is true,
then we must all throw up our arms in defeat and exclaim,
"They don't make em like they used to."
