It is always disconcerting when my precious laptop behaves strangely. Considering it is running Windows Vista, it works surprisingly well and without any real problems. However, this evening, while streaming football and surfing the internet, my electronic baby decided to throw a tantrum, display the infamous ‘Blue Screen of Death’ and start a ‘Physical memory dump’

I am not sure why the laptop decided to act in much a petulant manner. Maybe it was because the football match I was watching involved Leyton Orient winning. The fact they were playing Charlton pleased me (as a Leeds supporter), but maybe my darling computer is a fan of ‘The Addicks’ and was saddened by the game.

Whatever the reason, it seems to be behaving itself now. Memory errors can be such a frustrating problem to diagnose and fix. Sometimes it is easier just to throw your laptop at the wall, cover it in lighter fluid and light a match… That was a warning to my laptop, on which I am typing this blog.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
