'09 Feb 13 Friday I took my laptop back to Staples Business Depot on Tuesday as I was fed up with it hurting my eyes, causing them to be burning, itchy and out of focus. They are sending it back to see if they can fix the problem.
Today I bought a old used desktop PC from a local person off the internet through Kijiji. I had to pick it up but for $40.00, it was worth the half hour drive. It has a 735 MHz processor, 512 RAM and a 20 GB hard drive, with Windows XP. It came with a 17 inch monitor, keyboard, mouse, microphone, speakers, and a joy stick. I thought I could hook up my 40 GB external hard drive and download the programs I wanted, but that didn’t work as I guess the external hard drive was bigger that the computers hard drive.. To solve the problem, I used Marian’s computer to download the programs from my external hard drive to a USB drive and then I could transfer it to the PC. It was a bit more work, but I got thee basic programs installed without a hitch.
