Kristie and Her Laptop are in the Same Room Again!
Time for the Dance of Joy!! (busting a move, busting a move...)
After 12 days, 24 back and forths with the school computer, 2 irate but controlled phone calls, and 1 land-speed record-breaking drive to Best Buy this afternoon...
I FINALLY have my laptop back. Yes, it's sad that we, OK, I, am so dependent on my laptop, but I don't care about pride today. I'm just happy to have it back.
The frustrating thing? The Best Buy Geeks Squad and their Service Center Geeks couldn't find the source of the problem. (The display on the screen was all stretched out and no amount of restarting was fixing the problem...)
The good news is that (1) it didn't cost me a penny and (2) my warranty starts again today. And you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be back over there if the problem happens again. And next time...Geeky heads are going to roll....
But for now, I'm just glad to have it back. I don't have to reinstall anything. I just have to be hopeful (and maybe find a new place for possible future problems. Suggestions are welcome.)
Still, I'm trying to be grateful for small things.
