This last week my laptop has suddenly gone to hell. Actually it’s slowly been going to hell for awhile now. However it’s only a year and a half old! Right now I think it’s probably running worse than my 4 year old laptop, and that is not good. It literally takes about 10 minutes to be come usable after turning it on. Last night I tried to uninstall every single program I absolutely did not need to see if that helped, nope! Either the hard drive is going or I need to wipe it and start over. I HATE to wipe laptops clean, I’m afraid I will forget to back something up. However at this point my frustration keeps reaching the boiling point. It’s at the point now that my songs in itunes stutter if I minimize itunes to do other things. Grrrr! Online clips like on YouTube do the same thing. I fear the wipe out is coming soon, and if that doesn’t fix the problem the I will 1) be really angry I wasted a day wiping and reinstalling everything and 2) will have to contact Dell about getting the issue resolved. I was originally planning on getting a new laptop sometime next year that would run Windows Vista (this one won’t), now I’m thinking I might have to get one sooner if I can’t get these issues resolved. This laptop has had a few more issues than just this, so if I have to get a new one I might try something other than Dell this time around.
In happier news, everything seems to be coming together for a fun night out Saturday. Unfortunately now it seems the rain is going to be moving in that night
