So I have an HP D6000 series… and those of you who know what those are… know they’re really crappy.
My specific year and series was notorious for the wireless card not working, or blowing out. Literally, if you google HP D6000 that’s all everyone is talking about.
Now, to be fair, I have had my computer since the summer before my freshman year, however, for how much you spend- they really should last long!
Anyway, I’ve always been good to my computer, treated her well… but today was just not a good day for my computer’s life. First of all, the wireless card went out, so being that I’m a student and NEED internet, I quickly ran to walmart and got a silly usb wireless adapter. Which is nice that that’s an option, however, it’s like 3 inches of wobbly-ness coming out the side of my usb port. It’s actually kind of annoying, not going to lie.
Then I start realizing that my battery keeps falling out.
Seriously, both of these things happened in one day.
I think my poor baby is in the last stages of her life.
So… tonight I’ll go to sleep dreaming of this:
So today when I was talking to my mom I told her how my computer was dying a slow death and she responded with “Life’s tough, maybe we’ll have to get you a new one for your birthday.”
My birthday is in June and I’m praying to the God’s above that they’ll get me this pretty! I’ll even pay some! Please oh please.
Also, apparently I can get a $100 discount for being a student…. and I’m really really hoping my parents will think about it… Lets all make a wish for me! 🙂
