Computer Crash – Motherboard Died

Well, just as luck would have it, my main PC died. It appears that the main board on it died, so I wait for parts that I had to order. Right now I am using my laptop, which is very slow, and I hate typing on it–the keys are so weird. Anyway, I tried to find parts here in town, but none of the local stores had anything close to what I needed.

The CPU seems OK, but no one in town has a main board that fits my AMD 3+ CPU. So on-line I went. It took me about three minutes to find what I needed, but the wait will be a nail-biter. Sadly I have no idea how long it will take for the parts to arrive.

Salvaging what I have, should save me a bit of cash. I noticed that RAM was through the roof. My contact in Richmond, BC told me that the RAM prices are so much because of the BitCoin Data miners buying up the good RAM. It appears that 8G of good RAM is almost a hundred bucks now! Unreal!

I hope I can get my system back up and running soon.
