In Brief

December 9th, 2014 (04:07 pm)

I'm actually just checking to see whether I can post. My computer will not allow me to access LJ, and I'm using kproxy to even be here. Also, trying to get warranty service from Lenovo is a huge nuisance, and Staples is showing me how little my continuous business buying desktop computers from them is appreciated. My larger problem is that shortly after buying this computer (and continuously since), after updating to Windows 8.1, the sound breaks and ceases to work, requiring a restart to bring it back. I thought my fix of that by uninstalling updates broke access to LJ, so I reinstalled them, but I still can't access LJ normally. I guess this proxy will do for now.

Except for one thing - the button to enter the post did not do anything, so I am doing this with Semagic - but I think I can comment on the web :/

I wonder why everyone is having issues even getting LJ to load. One of the FB community pages for LJ have lots of people in arms over issues here. And of course I just came back to LJ to get my journal updated and going once again.

Sorry you're PC is giving you such grief. Any chance it's still under waranty???

LJ is working for me now without kproxy. I don't know what that was about. My computer IS still under warranty but getting service is the problem. Lenovo is not responding to my email. I am supposed to be able to have on-site service until February, so I will likely try telephone contact before then - it's just that phone calls frustrate me. I dread getting the runaround. I've never had to use a computer warranty. Staples warranty is for less time, and they tell me if I had bought extended warranty from them, they could help. Trouble is, once they get the money, they decide what they will do to help. I would never buy an extended warranty when it is so hard to get service under the warranty that comes with the purchase.
