Apologies for the lack of new posts, but the computer began slowing down at the weekend and then Wednesday morning it finally stopped working.
I've had numerous crashes, and the blue screen of death has appeared half a dozen times since last month (when I first mentioned it), but by Sunday it kept looping whenever I logged off, so the only way to shut down was turn it off at the tower. :(
Knowing it was going I had been looking around, but with so much choice online it's difficult to comprehend how it will look actually on my desk. I had specific requirements for capacity, but the position of the USB ports and the DVD drive was essential- I hated the vertical DVD drives!
I've done the basic set-up, and am now creating the recovery memory stick- it takes some time...
Of course before I could remove the old tower I had to clear everything off my desk (actually it's an old scarred dining table) and the area of the floor beside it.
So out with the hoover and the extendable attachment to the hose, so the dust-webs could be sucked up, and the floor cleaned. Once that was done I was able to move the table back and access the office book shelves.
There's still a lot to do before I'll be totally satisfied.
I don't have Office at the moment, which I really do miss. as much as Windows 7.. :(
Anyway, I'm back and aiming for my first post-Windows 10 blog post on Sunday.
So keep your fingers crossed I survive it all... :D
