My PC at work has been playing up over the last few months. Sometimes when I plug in a USB drive, for example, I get the dreaded Blue Screen of Death. I suspect that it’s an issue with Windows rather than a fundamental hardware fault.
However, to prevent as much downtime as possible, I’ve been gifted a new PC
- IBM/Lenovo ThinkCentre 8215-CTO
- Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20 GHz
- 1 GB RAM
- 200 GB HDD
- Windows XP Professional SP2 (version 2002)
which I’m now running side-by-side with my current (sick) PC. I now have 4 monitors on my desk!
Tomorrow’s task will be to migrate my files over, get the new PC connected to the network, and install printers and Microsoft Office 2003.
