Computer woes, again.
Posted by tim in I hate technology. on December 29, 2007

I am getting rather tired of making these entries, but I guess it's what I get from having old hardware.

At any rate, the machine I replaced my old computer with is now on the fritz. I was in the middle of watching a movie tonight after work, and the stupid thing rebooted out of nowhere. After it power cycled and came to the POST screen, it said "CPU is unworkable or has changed", which leads me to believe that the pile of crap Pentium 4 has kicked the bucket.

After shuffling through the spare parts I had laying around from the old computer, I found that I have nothing to replace it with now, and that I must limp by with this stupid thing rebooting all the time. Yes, I could use my laptop, but if you've ever worked on a laptop much you know how inconvenient that is. The lack of screen size is an added inconvenience.

I have to say, I have been rather displeased with this Pentium machine. It's the second one I've used and I find it to be incredibly slow and unreliable. I will never purchase another Intel system again.

But as with last time, if you're interested in helping me out at all, PayPal donations are more than accepted. Or if you have a newer machine laying around with an AMD processor greater than 1.5GHz in speed, let me know. I may be interested in purchasing it from you.

I should note that I would also be willing to barter for this.
