Measure for Measure

Old Computer, New Computer

My
Old
Computer
Is
So
Slow.

(It makes me really mad.)

I turn it on…

Time turner time turner
Frozen Screen
Crash
Fail
Shut down

    Total empathy …

    (You might try installing 360Amigo. There’s a shareware version. It helped my computer a lot, so I run it every week. It takes about three minutes now.)

    • I had one of those every week programmes, but we eventually caved and got a new computer. I am now just hoping I can transfer my files over before the old one really dies.

        I think computer failure is one of those unique traumas that generations before us couldn’t even conceive — photographs, writing, files, email addresses, music, all at risk of total annihilation. It’s exhausting and anxiety-producing. But mostly my experience is that one ultimately survives the losses. Good luck!

  2. I’ve been told the remedy is to reinstall the operating system, which means losing all your data, I think, so you have to back it all up. I have the same problem with my old computer which otherwise is perfectly okay. So one of these days I’ll have to practice what I’m preaching.

    • Thanks for the tip – but I’m moving on to a new one. I’ll clear the old one out and then maybe reinstall before passing my old laptop on to someone who wants it.
