My computer blew up.

Well specifically I had a motherboard failure, but basically it’s the same thing. I ordered a replacement from Dell but I think it’s been caught in Dell’s replacement part delay of doom. It’s a total ripoff too ($260 for a new motherboard) and they want to charge me $80 to have some guy come in to replace it if we can’t do it ourselves.

I’m so angry at my lack of knowledge of putting together PCs. I wish I could just buy the right parts and put a computer together but I have no idea what to buy.  I don’t want to spend money on a new computer because other than the mother board, all my other system components work fine. I think my video card is okay, my CD/DVD drive I barely ever use for anything and I have 3 gigs of ram + 500 gig hard drive. I don’t want to just “sell it on ebay”. I think they can still be salvaged…but I don’t know a thing about putting together a computer, or the compatibility of anything.

I’m extremely upset about this. While I can still visit sites like poupee girl from my phone or at work, I can’t play otome games. I can’t play tartaros. I can only login to tartaros from JP’s computer to get my login count but I can’t really play properly from his laptop (I don’t know how he does it.) I thought I would be able to be back up and running by this weekend but now it feels like getting back on to a computer feels further and further away.  I don’t know when I will be back but I guess don’t expect too many updates on this site until then 😥
