Computer woes fixed
Back in the bad old early days of personal computers, vendors set up burn in centers to test components of fully assembled machines. Out of 100, usually one or two could be counted on to give up the ghost with a fried hard drive, bad motherboard, etc. Now manufacturers “certify” their equipment will work out of the box. That’s bad news for the consumer who get a bad apple.
This was my experience with a 1 Tb hard drive that went south with just ten, that’s right 10, hours of service under its belt.
The goods news is Micro Center, the retailer located in Mayfield Heights, OH, replaced the drive in one day and never blinked. However, having moved most of my data and programs to the now unrecoverable drive, I had to start over from backups with the new unit.
I am back in business and blogging will resume soon.
