Undergoing surgery 動手術
Undergoing surgery. That’s my Laptop, not me. I’m fine. Don’t worry!
It all started when I bought my GoPro a couple of months ago. You may have noticed that I’ve been posting quite a few videos lately. Well, I’ve been learning how to edit videos but Laptop is quite old and the rendering takes ages. Short of replacing Laptop, IT Support, aka husband, suggested he could do a transplant on it. He said he could swap its hard disk for an SSD one.
This is the part where he (and I suppose all geeks) gets so excited because they can get their hands dirty again. In dummy terms, Laptop’s hard disk is a mechanical one so takes ages to process I/O (input output). An SSD hard disk can do it much faster. Doing this means I can keep Laptop, and (in theory) it will be more efficient.
Today IT Support offered to do a preliminary checkup on Laptop before operating on it. When he opened it up and took Keyboard off, I found bits of Crisps and Sandwich Crumbs. I had lost them some time ago and wondered where they had gone. So that’s where they’ve been hiding all this time!!
When Laptop was put back together, it booted up. All good. But then parts of Keyboard were playing up and refused to function. Whoops! Collateral damage during the preliminary checkup. Not a good start.
Now Keyboard has a double, which I think is rather funky. The only downside is when I take Laptop out now, I have to take Keyboard as well. That’s a bit of a pain.
The rest of the supplies for the operation are in. Laptop is undergoing surgery. IT Support is operating on Laptop and I’m hearing mumbles every now and then. I don’t know if it’s a good sign or not. Hopefully Laptop will be up and running tomorrow so I can write a proper post. Wish it and me good luck.
