Most of you with laptops, desktop PCs & Windows have experienced this !
2am. I switched off my laptop. Oh no. A Microsoft update !
1 of 18 ! 10 minutes later 2 of 18 ! …… Zzzz
Morning ! I woke up (I do that sometimes). Switched on my laptop. Made a coffee. Brought the cup back to the desk and …….
…….Windows 7 wouldn’t load. Seized !
After 1/2 hour of troubleshooting and retrying I had a “Yay!” moment, I was in !
Then I opened my Outlook to see what emails came in overnight. No Internet !
So down I went, under my desk. Cutting power to the gizmos, wiggling cables …….
….. nothing ! No change ! Then I banged my head getting up !
I didn’t do what this guy did. Shoot the laptop !
And it wasn’t a bird on my antenna.
One last thing to try. System Restore. Yay, I am online !
Bye, bye Microsoft update.
I helped Toni, my neighbour, who was cleaning my apartment, to move the sofa to extract the countless cats’ toys which they had patted underneath. (Sorry about the cat moment then.)
The ceiling light was ready to attack me !
“Got ‘im !” swung the light !
“Heehee !” laughed the sofa.
It was at this point I gave up helping Toni.
Well, Toni, who is knee high to a grasshopper, didn’t know what the fuss was all about !
The final results:
Laptop & Internet 3 ………………. Ralph 0
Ceiling light 3 ………. Ralph 0
I was. Well, my head was.
