PostSubject: Computer down   Wed Mar 14, 2007 11:04 am

I just wanted everyone to know that if anyone notices that I'm not on the computer much over the next few days, I had to put it in the shop...and it was TOTALLY MY FAULT!!! No

We had a big storm come through on Monday and Tuesday and we got a lot of rain. Accompanying it was wind, thunder and, yep, folks, hard to believe...LIGHTNING! Stupid me...we had to go to town and get my son and I left my computer plugged in...or, it may have been Kilroy! Whistle

So, when I came back it was off. I turned it back on and the light flashed for a second and went back off. So, I think I blew something.

I'm going to take it to Seguin tonight and turn it into the shop. Hopefully, it won't be too expensive to fix.

Don't miss me too much!!! :thankyou:

I bought a HUGE surge protector here at the office because I lost my Dell to lightening when I only had it for a few days.....it knocked the hard drive right out....had to replace it, so we decided it would be better to buy the $80 surge protector.....it guarantees to keep it safe.....it is one heavy duty protector....................Hope to see you soon Misti........Wave

O.K. I'm back up and running. I did pretty good. I turned my computer in Wed. night and got it back Thurs. afternoon. The modem and the power supply were damaged. It cost me $123. 00 to get it fixed. Glad I was missed.

Rhonda, I thought I had a surge protector on it. I'll have to ask David, but I thought it was what we had.

Anyway, I'm glad to be back!

Well, those little surge protectors that you get at Wal*Mart or wherever aren't the ones to get. My computer at work was on a bigger strip than those and it still got hit, so I purchased a HUGE powerful one. The one I got is called a Tripp Lite and you can view it here.... http://www06.quillcorp.com/Catalog/Browse/Sku.asp?PageType=1&sku=060830&EFFORT_CODE=901&FIND_NUMBER=ISOTEL8ULT And yes, they are expensive, but they have a warranty of $50,000.00 for your appliances that are plugged into it. Thumbsup

Hi, Misti. Wave

Welcome back!
grinsmiley I'm really glad you were able to get your computer fixed. Mine crashed due to a virus in Decemeber, and I lost every single bit of anything that was ever on it. Yes, I... bawling ...a little. I lost all my writing, for goodness sake! bawling
Enough about me. :shy:

Did you lose any of your information due to the surge? I hope not. That's a hurful feeling, and I'd hate if you lost everything, along w/ having to pay for repairs.

It sounds like you're suprised to have gotten lightning, and I'm wondering why? You don't have to go into deep detail of where you live, but could you shed some light? I'm thinking if you're in the US, it could be southern California. :think: I know it doesn't often rain cats and dogs, but it does rain there at times.

Again...welcome back! Thumbsup

Have a good one!

Hey, LM! Nope, thank goodness, I didn't lose any info. Everything was intact. Now, last time my computer totally crashed, I did lose everything. That broke my heart.

No, I don't live in California. I live in southeast Texas, about an hour from San Antonio. We have gone thru long droughts and such and it has been awhile since we've had a good old fashioned storm. In fact, David said he almost tripped over a poodle on the front porch the next morning! grinsmiley

We had two days of serious rain with the wind and the lightning. SmileyCentral.com All this week, in fact, we are due for drizzle some days and rain the others, clear thru Saturday. I had to go deliver the paper to the printers on Tuesday night and the rain didn't bother me; it was the lightning that worried me.SmileyCentral.com

Normally I wouldn't gripe about the rain but the next stage of our remodeling is tearing up our tiny living room floor, replace the floor and then recarpet it. But, we can't do it in the rain (since we're going to go totally redneck and move our couches to our front porch while we're working) so we have to wait until we have some clear days.

Wow, Misti. You're having a tough time. So it's been raining Poodles? Expensive form of rain, isn't it? :haha:

Thanks for telling me where you live. I have a friend who lives in Carrollton, TX and she's been telling me about the dreary rainy weather they've had. It'd gotten a little better sometime last week (maybe longer ago), but I don't know what it's like now. We've gotten a break from the rain that came last week here in NE Alabama, but then the temperature dropped way down. It was only in the mid 40's during the daytime for a couple of days. It was about 74 degrees yesterday. It's so weird how the weather changes like that, but I've seen it happen before.
I don't mind thunderstorms if I'm able to stay inside, but I'm not a fan of lightning either. When the streaks or flashes are really close, I get a little uneasy. I don't like to be out driving when it's that close either. :unsure:

I'm so glad you didn't lose any info that was on your computer, and I'm sorry you lost everything once before. Yes, losing everything on it does break your heart. Geeez. Blue

I hope the plans for your home will go smoother from here on out. And if you have to go Redneck to do it,...get-er-done! :haha: Good luck! Thumbsup

I like your Benson & Stabler avatar. Nice!

Have a good one!

This is where I am extremely thankful for my husband. He is a systems guy and he does daily backups of our data so this kind of thing doesn't happen. I told my father there was a good reason to marry a computer geek! :haha:
