My Laptop Crashed…No Problem

Hola a todos! (Hello all),

I hope you had as great of a week as I did. Guess what? I am so relieved to have my laptop back. Let me tell you a story about what happened with it.

A few days ago, Apple released a new operating system which is called OS X Mavericks. I was procrastinating to install it into my laptop. One day, I decided to install it, but I was very tired from school. I really wanted to take a nap for a while…I decided to put my laptop on the table, and let OS X Mavericks start to install. During the installation, I went to my lovely bed and fell asleep! My laptop went to sleep (black screen), too. Later, I abruptly woke up and checked it out. Unfortunately, the installation was all messed up because of the Wi-Fi. My laptop was supposed to keep awake, not go to sleep because the Wi-Fi would disconnect. I was so frustrated to reinstall over and over. It didn’t even work. Look at this picture.

But I found the solution for my laptop. An office at RIT called Resnet. What is that? It stands for Residential Networking and is part of the campuswide Information Technology Services organization. They provide free networking support for RIT faculty, students and staff too! They completed the repair to my laptop. I was so happy because I needed it for doing homework assignments this weekend! See the picture.

Have a great weekend! Peace out!
