And it hasn’t been that long since I bought a new computer!

… and looks like this one is already going down the crap hole …
So about 30 minutes ago, I was switching between Team Fortress 2 and WOW, and the computer locks up on WOW’s login screen. Reset… blank screen with a cursor after windows load. Not good.

From that point on I’ve been running into a range of random errors:
– blank screen
– a retro windows 2000 login prompt followed by my desktop background, but no start menu. Task manager opens but an error pops up if I try to run any program.
– instant reboot after windows load

I fired up safe mode. It resets my computer 30 seconds after it boots up.

I’m pretty sure a full reinstall of xp would temporarily tame the beast, but the point is: this thing had barely been past the one year mark and already it’s been crapping up on me. Computers these days… you rely on them more and more and at the same time they become less and less reliable. I swear, within my lifetime there’d come an age where I have to replace crap every single day of my life… that, or apple/linux rules the world and humanity is saved.
