Next entry: Actually, more computer trouble

Last Tuesday I took my new computer for repair - Win98 simply stopped working. Continuous fatal exceptions, problems starting up and shutting down, that kind of mysterious action. Installing Win98 again didn't do any good, so I decided to take the computer to the shop where I bought it.

Today I got a call from them - the computer is fixed and ready for pickup. Apparently the problem was overheating of the processor, caused by too inefficient cooling fan. The AMD Barton 3000+ needs lots of cooling, it seems. Now it should work, I sure hope it does... Computer trouble is very, very annoying. Fortunately I had a back-up computer.
