It is a little less than two years old but my laptop has really taken a beating. To begin with I didn’t realize how delicate they were, and kind of threw it around a bit. Also my five-year-old nephew pushed it off my bed, twice, a few weeks ago.
Anyway, now when I plug it in, more often than not the computer doesn’t charge and I have to keep jiggling with the plug until finally it starts charging. Then I don’t dare move the computer at all because it’s likely to stop charging if I do. This is obviously a serious problem.
So in a little bit I’m taking it to the shop. I am waiting for Michael to come home so he can accompany me. His ever-helpful roommate, F. (of dog attack fame), thinks probably some hardware came loose and the computer will need to be taken apart to be fixed.
This will probably be very expensive. Sigh. But I cannot afford to buy a new computer.
