Yeah, my desktop has been at the shop for the last ten days. The dvd/cd insert had stopped opening, with one of my Twilight Zone dvds still inside, and there were some other issues that needed attention. Unfortunately, these have occurred after the warranty expired. :sucks: Been real busy as well, but got a chance to get to the library to stop by. Should be getting mine back on Monday.

At first glance I read that as two bald men. :lol:

I hear your woes. I have two laptops and a desktop next to me that I need to fix. Plus my current system is starting to show its age. Guess its time I upgraded from Windows95. :D

That happeneed to me, back in 2015 iirc. My old Win 98 laptop finally crapped out after almost 12 years of owning it.. Had to get one with Win 8.1 on as that's all that was available (Or Win 10)..
