The day before yesterday, I talked about a few troublesome tech problems that happened to me last week. I thought that my ordeal with technological annoyances is over, at least for a while. However, my optimism proved me wrong.
Earlier, when I was using my computer, I encountered a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). Once the computer restarted, I read the crash log and I felt that the problem was software-related, though I’m not quite sure. While reading the log, another BSOD occurred (So, yeah, I haven’t finished reading it yet). When I tried to reboot my computer once again, this appeared:
I contacted Microsoft and asked what may be the source of this error. A genius there kept insisting that this error was hardware-related and that this happened to older computers a lot even after I explained that my rig was only half a year old and that I had already confirmed that all the hardware function properly. To avoid any more irritating inconveniences, I just opted to restore my PC to a previous state using a system image, which is thankfully only one week old. After finishing, the computer didn’t crash again.
I suspect that this was caused by corrupted system files since my system drivers are configured properly and I doubt that malware is involved. But I wouldn’t care about it too much as it’s resolved now.
After solving this issue, my internet connection suddenly lost without any reason. When I reported it to my ISP, they said that my connection has no problem. Apparently, they can check my internet connection by some means in their office, though I don’t know how it works. So, I was told to “verify if the cords are properly connected”, “make sure to shut down the broadband and the router for five minutes”, and other nonsense. Of course, I already did all of these before I called and they didn’t work.
Fortunately, when I did a hard reset of the router once more (I already did it two times), the internet came back.
I really hope that is really the end of this string of my tech-related misfortunes. But then, why do I feel that I just jinxed myself…
