WOOT! My Tablet Is Alive Once More!
Last Update: Nov 15, 2014
For those of you following my technology troubles of late, I have some good news to report!
My well-loved MS Surface Pro 2 is alive once more! I was getting more and more frustrated with Microsoft's customer service, so my long-suffering hubby took over. He got on a service chat with them and the tablet and, after about an hour or so. . . it works!
From what I understand, it had something to do with not getting updates to certain drivers because. . . I had powered it down instead of putting it in sleep mode. If it's in sleep mode, it will get its proper updates, but not if it's shut off. Lesson learned.
Yeah, I'm a happy camper. When he handed it to me and told me it was okay, I immediately grabbed it and set about a new, comprehensive project. . . that thing plays a mean game of Bejeweled!!!
One Fight Over
This one is solved, for now. Still awaiting word from Brother on the printer SNAFU.
And Now. . .
My laptop is, sadly, on its last round-up. It's been shutting itself down. If not the entire computer, the video has been shutting down and leaving the computer on. I did a little research and this model of HP seems prone to power supply problems. Oh, Goody! It's a few years old and I've beat it to death, so not too upset over this one.
I Haz Idea!
I was perusing laptops and cringing at the price of a good one (can we spell M-A-C, boys and girls?) Then I remembered that new desk top sitting under my old desktop, the one that never came out of the box. I tend to buy super specials when they appear if I know I'll be needing a replacement to something soon and my old desktop is way past its expiration date.
I can't use a large screen on my work desk, but I can use a small one. So. . . I ordered a 15" USB screen that looks like a tablet. Will hook the desk top up to the wee screen and use that until I can sort things out.
So, for now, I'm happy. Thanks to all of you who are reading my sagas of technological woe!
Till the next time something breaks!
