I tried to find the picture I had taken of my laptop but since I don't have them all in files I can find I couldn't. So just think of a Laptop. That's what this blog is about. The other day, Monday I believe, I was replying to Kim's email and all of a sudden the keys wouldn't work. Couldn't make anything. Darn, I was doing so good on this thing. I called my neighbor, who is more Savoy about computer's and also had gotten a new Dell laptop before Christmas. She came over and tried everything she knew, but hate;s Vista. Doesn't really know it as she ordered hers special with XP and Vista.
I couldn't find my booklet that came with it. Did later. I called my older bro.. in Oregon as he also has Dell and Vista and a laptop. His instructions was to shut it down unplug and wait till morning maybe it would all come back.
Nope didn't work. So yesterday I called Best Buy where I had looked at them and they had said that they were a registered help station for DELL Ask for the GEEK and told him what happened. He'd never heard of that,. Said I should bring it in.
Well with a storm going through, Schools closed snow coming down and turning to sleet, I wasn't going anywhere for a day or two. It is still sleeting this morning ans there is a good crust on the snow.
So this morning I did what my neighbor said I should do. Call Dell. Got a nice young lady who worked me through a complete restart and then I could type. It was funny, I could read all my mail , look at and read blogs but couldn't comment. Everything but make these keys work. Has anyone out there had this happen to them?I know now that I can also do that restart. They tell you how in the booklet. But she also gave me her phone number and extension so If I have other problems I can call her.
So the lesson is :: CALL the Help People.
I also got three more Snowflake blocks made so got something done besides tending to Hubby.
Have only had my new car out once. Sure glad to be able to talk to people now. Thanks for visiting.
