PITA


Yesterday evening my HP Touchsmart suddenly gave up the ghost... Not yet sure what the issue is, perhaps a power supply issue since plugging it in does nada, zip, zilch... no sign of life whatsoever - no monitor, no drive whirring, no power to any port, etc. Can't afford to be down for any period of time, so a quick swing by the store during the lunch break scored a replacement - a Gateway ZX6900-01E

What a royal PITA... Less than five minutes to set it up, but then several hours of downloading and reconfiguring packages e.g. Zonealarm, Office, Snagit, etc., etc. Hopefully the Touchsmart can be fixed, so would end up having a very nice PC for the guest bedroom.
