The Nola Kitty IT Department

  • Changed out and installed new 1 TB hard drive and installed new Windows 10 software on an HP Slimline that I found in my attic: CHECK

This one was under insulation in my attic along with an EFF-TON of Mardi Gras beads (a couple of cases) and throws.  It looks like the previous residents were in a Mardi Gras Krewe. There appears to be some black looking stuff (I think tar. CRAP!) that is on the bottom of this thing that is getting on my floors. I am happy about the computer working but not pleased about the tar. It previously had Windows 7 on it and 650 GB Hard Drive.  This will be one of my writing computers, so I’m okay with just 1 TB and Windows 10. Please excuse the dust bunnies …  and that black stuff is from the bottom of the computer. This one is a WIN!

***Edited to add: Just checked, this computer is so old there is only Ethernet and Dial-up available to connect to the Internet. Wow. There is no wireless card, no HDMI and in 2010 it was over 500.00. I thought I did something or forgot a connection, nope it is just that old :). Pretty glossy and pretty blue lights though.  ***

  • Lenovo Laptop upgraded with 2 TB HD.  That one is my son’s gaming computer.  All I know is I am happy that his beloved laptop is now working again. It has a G4 card or something like that, I call myself an IT department but still don’t know what the hell he is talking about half the time.

Second WIN! YAY for saving beaucoup money!

  • Third and last … a FAIL with the Gateway laptop I was trying resurrect for my Daddy. I cannot find a power cord for the darn thing. I rarely used it, and it was just updated to Windows 10.

That was from a dark time in my life, so maybe it is good that it is dead. 🙂 Was going to wipe it and give it to Daddy, but that was a bust. Back to the drawing board and to Best Buy to return the Universal cord. 🙁
