Uh-oh

4 March, 2008

My laptop is making a horrible grinding noise, so if I go AWOL for a while, maybe even months, it’s because I’m computerless.

 (I live on ~$200/mo. plus food stamps.My disability appeal, if it’s approved, might take 60 days or more…. If it’s not approved, oy, I don’t even want to think about that.)

    It’s possible that it’s your fan. Try to see if you can get some canned air and blow out every little nook and cranny. If dust collects on a fan it’ll get off balance and make a horrible racket.

    Oh no! I’ll be thinking good thoughts for you–for the computer but most especially for the disability claim. Hang in there!

    Oh I hope it all works out! Come back soon because your going to be missed.

    Also as the first poster mentioned – open that case up and give it a good cleaning. It’s surprising how much dirt and dust gets in there.

    I hope the situation with the computer is not so bleak. Perhaps it just needs a good cleaning.

    Take care Melissa, come back when you can🙂
