Problems, we all have them every day. Most are fairly small and easy to fix. Others drive you to the edge of insanity. We all have things that get under our skin, that really tweak us or "push our buttons". I have a love hate relationship with technology, most notably with computers.
I have been struggling with a finicky computer for a few weeks. It will work fine for a while and then....BAM, I get the BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). And not just once, it recurs several times, I do this, I do that and it seems to be fixed. At least for a while.
Well this week it all went blue again. This time how ever Old Blue wasn't going away with a little of this and a little of that. So I go onto another computer and start searching on Google for some answers.
I love Google, you can type in anything and it seems it has an answer. I find an article that sounds like my problem. The author says the errors are basically to do with the computers memory. He suggests a little of this and a little of that after which one should open the computer and systematically remove the memory sticks one at a time.
I open my computer, discover that it badly needs a cleaning, and see that I have four sticks of memory. Odds are this could take a while. Well I clean out the computer, pull a memory stick out and start it back up.
Wouldn't you know it has been working fine ever since. A little slower because there is less memory, but no more wackiness and so far no BSOD.
I am still shaking my head in wonder that it was that easy to fix. I guess sometimes in life the solution comes easy and other times, who I am kidding, most times it's a struggle.
