    Laptop dead

    Welp, that's my laptop giving up the ghost. It just went through one accidental jerk too many.

    It's powering on, but the screen isn't turning on, and the caps lock key is blinking at me (slowly). It's not worth fixing, either (cheap model).

    I'm posting this from my phone, as my desktop isn't set up yet.

    I might be a bit slow replying, since it uses the TV as a monitor.

    Well, that's a shame to hear, Arratra. It isn't ever an enjoyable thing when one's first lifeline to the interwebs wants to up and die on a guy. Hope you're able to get something set up for yourself again soon.

      Well, I'm set up my desktop and logged in though it.

      Back on Chrome for now (damn thing doesn't want to download Firefox), but it seems to be working fine for the moment.

        Had someone look at my laptop, see what went wrong, since there was a possibility it was something that could be fixed cheaply (like a loose wiring).

        Unfortunately, that's not the case.

        The CPU's shot. Must have gotten cracked or something when I jolted it by accident. It simply isn't worth fixing; it'd be cheaper to replace the whole computer.

        At least I've got my desktop PC.

            Ah, well. I got quite a lot of use out of it in the time I had it.

            Just kind of annoying that I don't have something portable any more.
