Computer problems

Illus. By Rob Davies
Some of our diarists were having problems with their computers on September 24th.
  • Switch on the computer but the keyboard wasn't detected so tried again - now the screen won't show up - so switch off - try again- nothing happening - I hate computers - they never seem to do what I want when I want. Decided to go out for some fresh air.

  • Frustrating day with new technology - bring back papers and pencils, or even blackboards and chalk! Had a faulty CD-Rom which would not run, and spent rest of day trying to evaluate websites which would not open - I hate computers.

  • Computer repairer took my PC to replace hard drive.

  • 2.30 - 4pm On the phone talking to technicians about my computer problems, they agreed with me that modem not working.
    8.45pm Phone rang - friend about computer - is it going back?
    9.20pm Packed up the computer to go back to be fixed.
