HP Support Blog: Day 9


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 11 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Success, of a kind, today.

A brand spanking new engineer turned up this morning, on time. It took him a couple of hours to decide that he wasn’t convinced the hardware was the problem, but maybe Windows was objecting to the new (probably not faulty) system board. Unforunately, I was unable to furnish him with a copy of my Compaq Restore CD, so he’s taken the machine away to test his theory – he hopes it will be back early next week (presumably Tuesday, Day 13 – Monday is a UK Bank Holiday).

I’ve also had a call from the lovely HP man at Warrington, checking how things were progressing and telling me to get back in touch with him if the problems weren’t resolved.

So, all-in-all, some kind of result. The laptop has left the building, and won’t be back for some time, but hopefully will return fixed. Hopefully.

Look out on Tuesday for the next update.
