Well I would bring it to the repair shop as soon as possible. I don't want to miss the fun in mylot. If the computer needs to be repaired for a few days as some technicians love to do, then I would go to an internet cafe' and visit mylot. One day of having no computer would be trouble to me. I think I am so addicted to internet activities that I couldn't go for a day without opening my computer. I always want to read the response in my discussions and I also try to respond to other mylotter's discussions.

firstly I'm a teenage white kid so some how I was born knowing how to do this kind of thing so I would just tinker with it until it starts on fire or starts working either way it should end in a very satisfying way one I get to use the computer again ore two I get to roast marshmellows over molten plastic!

I am computer technician and I have lots of parts if my unit aren't working I just replace the parts to make it work again. I do not want my computer to down for one day or more. My hardware are well maintain and well keep especially the software because if you are too careless my internet and local activities with my computer will be interrupted. " Computer is out of order" is out of the question. Well that is my opinion only. Keep Mylotting.

Good for you but like me who doesn't know anything about computer repair, I'd surely have a big problem when my computer is out of order. Cheers!!

Watch tv programmes or go out to have some activities with friend. If no appointment or any tv programmes are fun, then just read a book, study and read news which are all good for your knowledge and help you in the future

Well i'm the Technician myself and a qualified one, i never have any problems with my pc, the only thing i should make sure is running on my computer at all times is the anti-virus that keeps my computer healthy and protected against all those virus that can corrupt it I think the next time your pc broke down you should take to me, i do not remember spending 1 day fixing a pc,Lol But i think most system crashes are caused by virus and if not... the mis handling of devices which can lead to static destroying your pc, but i think if never open your computer the problem will with the virus, or some software you just installed causing it to crash

Hopefully I won't experience that crisis! It's my intention to build a computer from scratch so maybe I can do this in time before my present pc goes. I can then use the built pc whilst I fix my broken pc! I love maintenance and I guess I do everything myself. This is the best way. You don't have to pay a fortune in technician's fees then. I cannot live without My Lot! May it remain here forever. I used to go to the library to have my Internet sessions but this is in the past now, I hope that I don't have to travel down that road again. Andrew

Hello Masmasika!!!!!! When my computer is out of order, then I try to find out the problem first. If it is related with software then i will try to fix it, by re-installing the softwares,or formatting the PC.If it is related with the hardware then I also bring it to repair...And during free time I read novels and stay with my friends.... keep mylotting!!!!

If my computer is out of order someday, I will bring it the the repair center. If it is needed to be left there, I will do that. Without the conputer I can do some other things, for example reading, watching TV or visiting some friends. The internet is not the only thing we have in life, there can be a lot of fun we can get from other things. Happy mylotting.

Hey ! Comp is very essential for me . So when it goes bad or out of order I definitely try to sort that out. First I will look at the problem and try to solve it self if feasible otherwise I would call the engineer . Lots of time i faced such issues sometimes i do it of ma own ...but most often i need an engineer to resolve the purpose.

Hi there! If my computer is out of order I will have a technician fix it too. It actually happened to me before. But it only took the whole until my computer was fixed so I was still able to log in on mylot after. But I did once went to an internet cafe near my house. My computer wasn't broken that time but I was having problems with my internet connection. I am also addicted to this site and can't stand it not being able to visit mylot, so I rented a computer for a few hours. Ciao!

Hi masmasika! I will make sure it is the software or hardware issue first. If it is hardware issue, of course need to take to repair shop. If not, I will try to find the solution online or reinstall operation system. But since I have got 3 computers, two notebooks and one desktop, I don't need to go to internet cafe'...

I would repair it myself coz I know some mechanics of the PC myself but if everything fails on me, I usually go to my friend who owns a PC shop.

Good thing I know how to fix my computer. It was so great knowing all those techy stuff about the computer hardware and software a bit. It really helps me big time. But if I can't really fix my pc, I go directly to the repair shop.

I'm not a technician, and didn't go to school for it, but I build my own computers. I learned to do it out of necessity. In the past before I learned how I would take my computer in for repair and have to wait forever before I get it back from them. Thankfully, I've always had more than one system. Once, I took a system back to Best Buy for repair because I bought the extended warranty, and I was without my computer for 6 months, because I would take it in, the would half-heartedly fix it, then it would go down again a couple of days later. Ever since then I figured I'm a smart guy, so I should just be able to do it myself. So I took it upon myself to learn to build my own from scratch, that way, when somethings goes wrong I can identify it myself and fix whatever goes wrong with it. Only problem with that is, now everyone comes to me to fix THEIR computers....

I haven't try bringing my computer in some technician guy or shop. As much as possible I repair my computer if it is out of order. I heard from my friends that some technician would stole some parts of your computer and replace it with something else and besides I have little knowledge on fixing computers so why not use it and it is expensive to seek professional help. It is not that hard to fix a computer. If it is out of order then maybe you have to replace some of it parts or to reformat it. I spend whole day before fixing my computer. I tried to finished it in one day just not to missed mylot for a longer period of time. It is so addicting here. Happy mylotting
