Wow what a week.

As I posted in the last blog I had it home two days and then the screen went out, Donna and I decided that instead of putting more repair money into it we would replace it with a new one. Went to Wal-Mart and bought another HP laptop. That set us back another 300 dollars.
Got it home and then came the worst part, setting it up and trying to get it loaded with the programs I was using, fund out windows 10 will not load Office 2007, when I upgraded on my old laptop everything went in 10 okay. But not with the new version. This left me without my email program (Outlook). IT also would not load Live Writer.
It took two days and a lot of Googleing to finally get all the  programs I use loaded, I also get my e-mail now via the Centurytel website.
So here I am thoroughly frustrated with all the effort it took I hope I never have to buy and load another one.
                               Sadie’s new make over.
That’s about it for today, hope all is well with all our friends out there. Be safe, Sam & Donna…..


  1. I know what you mean about reprogramming your old computer I'm still working on it.
    You should set up an E-mail account on G-mail or Hotmail so that way no matter who your carrier is you can keep the same E-mail forever. Believe it or not it was our service providers installation tech that told us that after our old provider had dropped our addresses four times. Now no more changes.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. New computers and new systems are terrible to have to deal with. Kevin won't upgrade to the new Windows 10 because it will automatically update everything and you can't stop it. Because we use cellular network much of the time this is not good for us because it would use up all our data and more costing us a mint.

    Hope everything else is going well for you both.

    Love Sadie's makeover!

  3. Glad you finally got it all worked out. Computers......love/hate relationship! Sadie is adorable,even without the makeover!

  4. I'm with you. I'm hoping I never ever have to get a new computer again cause setting them up is such a nightmare. I use gmail and it really is an easy email to use.

  5. Oh Dear & Kelly just ordered a new Lenova Think Pad from Amazon today. It comes with Windows 10 Pro. Every time we have moved on to new Windows versions I've just about ended up in a straight jacket. I not only don't have the teckie smarts for this kind of stuff I no longer have the patience!!!!

  7. I recently upgraded to 10 and I have had nothing but problems with the photo set up. I have tried to get the guy to take it out and restore my 7 loved that program. I am going to find some one to take it down for me.

  8. We are in need of a new laptop, but Dennis is hesitant for the same reasons...and I have NO patience anymore..If I would stay off the smart phone and computer, my blood pressure might come down!

  9. I am a constant worry that I will have to buy a new laptop, and I hate the thought of it. I wouldn't have the patience you do!
