In exact words … I was about to strip my computer apart and sell off whatever I can. After all, I did a check with all my components and they are working fine each on their own so I wouldn’t feel guilty selling these parts away. But why the trigger? Hear me out.
One morning I woke up, looked at my mirror, and said to myself: God damn it! I am a graduate from the school of computer engineering and science and this computer of mine has been giving me both hardware and software problem. Can I not solve it? Frustrated, I gunned for drastic measure.
My options were clear – either sell off parts and get a Dell or keep my S$900 high end monitor and get a Mac Mini. And of course, another option was to get it fixed. Given the fact that I have been facing this annoyance for close to half a year, I would be better off getting a new one.
Interestingly, by following the diagnostic methodogically, the problem seemed to have gone away for good. However, I shall not boost too much because nowadays, you will never know. The same problem may just come back and haunt me again. The positive sign was that I was able to install my OS and applications without any registry corruption.
And as I shared my findings with my colleague this morning, he has suggested something else to enhance my solution. Tempting … as I have kind of downgraded the configuration of my computer for now. Risky it will be because everything is working very smoothly now.
