The laptop, after getting its overhaul by our wonderful IT guy, had been behaving relatively well for a few weeks. That is, until this morning.
It froze, but then wouldn't restart. It still won't boot up.
My boss called the IT guy, who says he has another diagnostic magic wand to wave at the laptop, but after that, she is going to get fixed, overhauled, whatever she needs. Right now, it's more feasible for me to pay a few hundred dollars to get another year out of this computer than to shell out for a new one.
Oh, I am so depressed.
