I think my computer is on its last legs. It’s 10 years old. I had to do a “system restore” to get online. I can only open one window at a time. Unless I can download another browser that can use this old dog, I won’t be posting much for a couple of weeks. I never could update beyond Internet Explorer 6 with Microsoft updates.
Good luck with the puter.
Ten years old? There are a lot of sales on this stuff this time of year.
Tried Linux? There are many variations that are lightweight, great for older computers, and easy to use. Whatever you choose please don’t leave FR your ping list is the best!
Hard drive failure, sounds like. I’ve got the same thing going on here. Mid-1990s PowerMac; I’m finally going to upgrade this last-legs Quantum 1.1 gb internal, and probably will also retire the 10K rpm IBM external SCSI 18 gb. Had some ink cartridges I got for nothing, got lots of credit ($1 apiece) at Staples, and have a PATA 500 gb coming, cost less than $50 to me.
I just bought a new refurbished computer for $300. Don’t torture yourself, put it out of it’s misery. You could probably find something decent on craigslist for $100.00.
Sorry to hear about your computer problems neverdem.
Thanks for all the pings.
