FOWC with Fandango: Sporadic

I no longer understand the computer world. I have two computers – why not. One is my Apple which serves its purpose well for my daily blogs. My other is an Acer Widows model and has served its purposed for almost the past 10 years, which is a small wonder. It is an Acer Aspire Nitro and I mainly use it for uploading my Photos, but also saving files and writing, a very versatile model. When I bought my Acer, Mr. Swiss decided he also needed a new computer, although he always made such decisions after I made them. He then bought the same computer, but decided after a few months it was not good enough and bought another computer: his decision and problem, His Acer was then forgotten (by him) and put to rest on a shelf. Time passed and in the meanwhile he had a few computers, but I was still using my Acer, even today. He is now in a golden oldie home and I have been organising at home. He is no longer able to handle a computer.

And now I have a problem, The power adapter on my computer is no longer loading. It stopped at 6% snd it seems to have given up the ghost after so many years. Not wanting to invest in a new one I decided to use the power adapter from the Acer computer that Mr. Swiss never really used. It was ideal and worked well – for a few months. Now it has stopped loading at 60%. And so I took the old adapter to see if it had recovered in the meanwhile, Yesterday I plugged it into my computer and a wonder has happened. It loaded to 100% and today it is still working. It is the black box in the bottom middle of the photo. I do not know why it now works and if it will give up the ghost again. One day I will have to get a new computer I suppose, but that is not my intention at the moment. I wonder if Bill Gates had such problems with his computer.

  1. My husband uses a lap top he got back in 2012, we’ve replaced the charger several times. The battery is shot and doesn’t even charge up at all now. We keep it plugged in anyway. We know we are on super bonus time with that computer. Having other financial priorities has kept us from getting a new one. When will we be forced to put that to the top of the list? Jesus only knows at this point. lol
