I didn't quit. I don't do that!

I had a major power failure in my building in mid-June, and my PC was down because of it.

A friend got me back on  and I now have a strong new surge protector on it. I've been rebuilding it since, restoring data backups and reinstalling apps.

Hopefully this won't happen again.

I'm back after a day with a new motherboard in my computer; after nearly a year I can use the USB ports again! My system worked without them, but it's good to kno9w I won't have to anymore.

More important I'm now able to use my  larger HD properly.

The good news: my SATA drive went into my PC easily.

The bad news: I have to replace the motherboard. Its USB ports went bad.

I had a friend here for over 6 hours, and he tried his best to make it work. It turns out to be the hardware at fault.

Fortunately the part is under warranty.
