Default Oh the joy of computers...

Computers are like cars; you buy some pieces needed and something else breaks off.

I bought a 128MB stick for $25 (The other shop closed down) and a 16MB PCI card for my Dell. Perfect, all running well with Windows XP...now, I need to get those CPUs.

But, my whitebox PII 350 needed Windows FLP in...and the laser gets stuck and fails. Now, it's working okay, but I;ll soon need another one. I repair something, somewhere else, it breaks down

Oh...the joy of computing

Yeah, you get that with old things. What can you do though? It's old, it's liable to break down sometime.

Well, they can last for ever if you well maintain them, but the most weakest stuff, like HDD, CD drives and others can break down easy. It won't be until ages or due to mistreating that a motherboard, PSU or CPU would go.

For PSUs, I'm talking good class PSUs. Not cheapo ones.
