And the Old Computer is.....

Posted by fiddlepogo on Friday, December 19, 2014

Terminally ill, more or less.

I took some stuff to the computer recyclers today, and got the info from the guy that a generic power supply would work.

I found a generic power supply with the right plugs in an old computer I have around running Windows 98 for a few off-line tasks, installed it in my eMachines tower and....

It does the same thing..... maybe a LITTLE less.  But my e-mail provider's log-in page almost always does it, and I would really like to be able to check e-mail at home.

Oddly, the Fiddle Hangout gives me almost no problems... well, it shut down ONCE.

Yahoo mail lets me in, then the computer shuts down when I try to log out!

Well, the tech at the computer recycling place warned me the failing power supply had probably already damaged the motherboard.... the voice of experience I guess.
