So we had a power outage and now Orville won’t boot up again. I called up the computer hospital where Computer Guru Jamie works. He’s not there right now. Will be back in half an hour.
The lady told me this was not a problem they could fix over the phone and I’d have to bring him in. At 3:30 I will call again and see if I can convince Jamie to come here instead. He’s Michael’s friend and comes over often anyway.
I have a feeling this is going to be an expensive repair. As this falls under the purview of Charley Project expenses — I don’t use the computer for much else — any donations would be appreciated.
I wil donate. Suggestion is to plug your computer into a surge protector. You probably do, but if you don’t, it is a good idea to. I have a number of electronic computerized machines, and asked a qualified technician ‘What are the do’s and the don’ts?’ He said plug any computerized machine into a surge protector.
