It's been a traumatic time - but my poorly computer is all better again!
You wouldn't believe what's been going on. Last post, I mentioned I took the computer into Currys to see if I could get any help. Well, I did!
Currys' new thing is to repair in-branch wherever possible, so I (for once) was in the right place at the right time. Their Go-To person (female) was very patient, listened to the whole sorry tale then phoned up their IT personnel - who advised I bring the machine in so they could verify the hard drive was the one they supplied. Which they did - and yes, my machine was already obsolete at that time so I had indeed been given a reconditioned, reformatted Windows 98 one.
|See this? Only 29.3gb, plus an A Drive that doesn't actually exist|
Herewith 2nd call to the Currys IT personnel by the wonderfully helpful lady at Currys - who handed the phone over to me so I could explain more clearly. The IT person then instructed the helpful Go-To Girl in what to do, and voila, my machine is now in a GO situation again! Hurrah!
|There's the little sucker - hiding on the right! So now I have Drives A, C, D, E and F... shouldn't there be a B somewhere, to complete the set?|
Suffice to say, I'll be getting back to posting about the artwork soon.
