Crying Over Spilled...Water!

My laptop had an accident.

Someone spilled water on the key board.

No one has confessed.

I took it to Best Buy to have the Geek Squad fix it. They wouldn’t even send it off to be looked at for less than $180. Then the guy told me that it wouldn’t be fixed for less than $500, but it would probably be more like $800. I told him that it was not fair for him to talk to me like that! 

I took it to another place and he gave me a number for a guy.

When I called “the guy” I told him what happened and then I told him that I took it to Best Buy. He started to laugh at me. He told me to bring it buy and that he would check it out for free.

Well, I took it over there and didn’t hear anything from him for awhile. I finally talked to him and he said that he was having a hard time finding a new keyboard for me that would fit my laptop. He’s still looking. He did have a temporary solution for me. He sent my laptop home with a detachable full size keyboard.

It works but it looks ridiculous!

I’m trying to have a good attitude but I really just want my laptop fixed and I want it fixed cheap. Is that too much to ask?

Please agree with me that “the guy” will quickly find what he needs to fix my laptop and get it working properly very soon! And, that it will be at a good price! I don’t feel too creative with all this equipment.

What's up with laptops attracting water?!?! A few days after Pam's laptop baptism my kids spilled water on mine. Luckily it wasn't bad at all -- just a little. Now yours!

Lord, bring a miracle to this important piece of technology!

I guess I'm just a little naive, but I don't think we should have to pay for things like getting water on our keyboards or sending cell phones through the spin cycle! That is the nature of, well, my house. There are all kinds of things that could happen to a piece of delicate technology in my house. I need Fisher Price to make a cell phone and a laptop for me. Surely they would understand the need for waterproof mother boards!

I have had a mouse problem for a while. I am sure my kids have something to do with it. I feel confident your "guy" will find a solution.

After losing a complete computer to my precious little grandchildren, I became a lot wiser this time around. I have safety locks on my computer and no one can get to it without the keys. As for spills, after hearing all of your stories, I am afraid to even put a drink on the table near the computer.

I pray that your laptop will receive a miracle.
