RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH Computers!!Posted Tuesday, March 31, 2009, at 6:58 PM
Sometimes the forehead works better
I had never come across this in 8 years of doing computer repair...Finally figured it out after a wee bit..
IE was corrupted and causing a glitch...
Uninstall IE, Reinstall Presto...
OK, I have some amusing stories about computer repair.
One day i was repairing a small desktop unit for a power supply, I open that sucker up and roaches poured out of it! Ekk, yukkk.... needless to say they got billed extra for the Orkin man.
I had a lady call me for support about her new computer. She said the cup holder was not working properly. I said what??? (To myself..) but to her i asked where is this located? She said "in the front of the computer next to where i sit." OOOps, she was trying to put he drink in the CD rom slot.... Not good. She told me she wondered why it kept closing on her.
Another call: a man called about his new computer he bought, he said the foot pedal was not working correctly.
(HUH) I asked him to describe the pedal to me... small shaped kinda oval two buttens..... Ahhh the computer mouse.
So diplomatically as I could i explained it was the mouse.. hand held.
He said oh i thought it was like the sewing machine..
I have seen all kinds of vermin inside computer cases.
Rats, Spiders, roaches (they love electronics) and crickets. And the occasional peanutbutter and jelly sandwich.
A toddler can ruin a computer in less than 3 seconds.
I have several more amusing things that i have seen and heard over the years.... what about you??
Do you have any funny stories about computer, auto and other work related funnies??
