I will be the first to admit that when it comes to tech, I love to use it. But when something goes wrong, I go running. For example, 2 days ago I went to turn my television on. Sound was coming out but no picture. So I asked my good friend Google what I should do. It told me to unplug it for a minute and turn it back on. Easy enough. I done that several times. So I read what to do if that don’t work. The instructions was to pull my 65” television out and remove the back. That is where I panicked. It was giving me instructions about a bulb or something inside. I knew I couldn’t do it, John was about as knowledgeable as I was with that. So we had to make a decision.
A.) Go without Television
B.) Get in our emergency money and buy a new television
We chose option B. Which landed with us downsizing to a 55” tv, but this one is a smart tv, I guess the other one was dumb?
I knew I would be the one rehooking cable and all the other devices we have so I told John I would unhook each thing and put it straight in the tv. I thought it was a plan, but it wasn’t. I guess the back was different so things needed hooked up different. It took me several hours but I finally got the cable hooked up. The next day I managed the dvd player and ROKU. Our WII that we didn’t use anyways is now stored for some other time.
That is just one example of me and hooking a tech item.
The laptop I am using has been without a CD Rom for awhile now, mainly because I didn’t know how to fix it when it stopped. It has been a pain not having it but I have managed. Then I heard about a external CD Rom, DVD from a company called Novapolt. I really wanted it but just wasn’t sure if it would involve me doing a lot of work to get it to work.
It came in the mail and I opened the box. Wondering who I knew that would help me to get it working right. To my surprise I didn’t have to do anything to get it going! Well, I did have to stick a USB cord in the side of my laptop.
It plays discs really well, as well as software – it even burns disc. I really wish I had of known about this sooner.
Here is more info about it from the company:
It is available on Amazon and at a great price of $24.99
