Desktop broken, too. May 29, 2008

Posted by Mike C. in Personal, Technology.

Today, my desktop computer was the latest to break on me.  Early yesterday afternoon, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 was automatically downloaded and installed.  At the same time, I installed two new 1 GB memory DIMMs.  Then, the computer crashed on me with the Blue Screen of Death appearing followed by an automatic restart.  Thinking that the new memory was the problem, I took the DIMMs out and put the old 512 MB ones back in.  The crashing continued every time I tried to start up or a few minutes after start-up.

A computer technician is coming by later today (Thursday, which started 10 minutes ago as I write).  Hopefully, they’ll fix the problem.  Wish me luck.

Meanwhile, I moved my three external hard drives to the guest room computer, which I’m on right now.  It’s a good thing I decided to rely primarily on external drives a few years ago and also good that we have a second computer in the house.
