Real-izing Your Virtual Identity

The Critically Ill Computer . . . How Long Should You Attempt Life Support?

Posted by barbararozgonyi on September 1, 2006

On August 1, I dropped my Gateway tablet off at CompUSA for a virus scan.

Annoying messages kept coming up – over and over and over and over again.

It wasn’t a virus.

It wasn’t spyware.

CompUSA didn’t know what “it” was.

They assured me diagnostic testing would provide answers.

The Gateway’s been to Texas twice and there are still no answers. The good news is I have two back up computers and an external hard drive.

The bad news is I don’t have my tablet. And, I don’t know when or if I’ll get it back.

Being a positive person, I’m posting this notice to let folks know that before they key in their credit card numbers or swipe their card at the cash register, they MUST check out the service agreement’s promised turn around time.

If it will take more than 48 hours to fix your computer, take a pass. Go for the service upgrade. And, drive right on by CompUSA.

My VAIO came from ecost.com – with a low price and a 48 hour turnaround on service.

I’d like to apply for the most difficult to fix computer contest, if there is one. Hey, may I’ll host it!
